I LOVE how involved the parents and PTA are! There were some problems I had with Principal Adams but since we have a new one this year I hope that it becomes better managed. He was great with standards but resolving conflicts wasn't his forte. I am so greatful for the teachers and volunteers that have made it where my son, who is a handful, didn't get overlooked. I look forward to the 2013-2014 school year.

I'm proud to say my kids go to Highland Ele and from Norco. This is the perfect place to have small town living and have teachers involved with our students. The PTA is a wonderful resource to help our students and parents stay connected with Highland. Our principal put the students first and was always available to speak with. He'll be missed, but I'm sure our next principal will have the same value in his position with our school. Keeping Highland safe and small town relationship with our parents, students, and faculty.

Bullying is at its highest level. School administration is simply hopeless. When I approached and complained to the principal about bullying and the suffering of my son in his school, his response was completely irresponsible. Class teachers do not want to resolve bullying problem. One of the teacher said to my son that "there is nothing he can do. Its your problem". Even teacher isolate some innocent kids and make target of their jokes. And encourages more bullying. IF YOUR KID'S EDUCATION IS NOT A SERIOUS ISSUE, DON'T ENROLL THEM IN THIS SCHOOL.

I figured this school would be good for my son who makes good grades and doesn't have issues with getting a long with other kids, but there have been these kids who have been bullying him for a few months now and it seems no amount of phone calls to the teacher or to principle Adams has changed this. It's ashame really that this goes on and no one does anything about it. After all of this and having my son come home stressed out everyday I think it's time to move him to a new school. I hope others have better luck.

I adore this school. The teachers and staff are outstanding. We are an overload school and many of the students going back to their home schools wish they could stay. I cannot say enough good things about Highland!!! Keep up the great work!!!!

I have two children at Highland and we all love the school and all the teachers. My children have been there for 6 yrs.My husband and I are very involved and that makes a big difference. The principal and vice-principal are open to opinions and change and that's a big plus for our family.

This was my first year to experience public school education for my children. They have been in a private Christian school untill now. It has been a wonderful experience for myself and my two children. The school is organized, the curiculum fits the needs of all children and most importantly there is a sense of pride amoung the staff and kids.

I love this school! It has become a state recognized school since the pricipal highly focuses attention on reading skills 1st to better prepare students for learning and understanding of other acedemic skills like spelling & mathematics. My child has high scores & they have been consistant. The parents are given many opportunities to become involved with their child at school, either in class, special clubs, or even special lunches. A very focused school!

All three of our chidren were students at Highland Elementary. Two have since graduated and our youngest is still a student there. This was a wonderful school until 2003 when long time Principal Lautenslager transferred to Clara Barton and took 70% of the key teachers with him that made this a special place. Since that time it has gone downhill. The majority of the classes combine two grade levels. Lack of class and playground supervision is a major problem. A bullying prevention program was implemented but to date is not working. The noontime supervisors have not been trained to supervise bullies and the regular staff turn the other way. Kids that are tattling on bullies are being labeled as troublemakers themselves because it is easier then doing something about the bullies. The school, students, and staff have a long way to go before I would recommend it to anyone.

Our son has attended Highland for 2+ years now. The school has gone through many changes in those years, including new Principle, and V.P., new teachers, new buildings. The staff all seem to be very positive about the changes and the children all seem to have 'school spirit'. The number of students dropped greatly the past couple years since a few new schools have opened in the area and many students have been moved to those schools. We're enjoying the teachers my son has had as they seem to work hard to assist him as he is 'special needs'. We look forward to the growth of the school as they build new classrooms, etc. The PTA seems to work hard to assist the school in meeting its needs with fun programs. The Principal and VP really seem to be there to better the school for the students, teachers and parents.
