Highland is such an extroadinary school. Yes, the parent involvement could be better but it is hard to go wrong with all the great teachers, office staff and administrators. Ms. Petix (principal) and Mr. Cuellar (asst. principal) are the kindest caring administrators around. The PTA seems to be working very hard to enhance classroom work. Our school is very lucky to have a school were the kids come first and overall, everyone (teachers, parents and admin) is working together to achieve the best for our kids.
The principal has a good leadership & the teachers are bright... But the parents need to get involve a little bit more because one of the most important factors for achieving success in school is discipline. Discipline starts from home!
The principal, Ms. Petix is great. The teachers & staff are all dedicated. However, the parents need to get involve more! Discipline & guidance- starts at home. These things are very important in achieving academic success! We as parents have an obligation to our children... They are our future! Let us help the principal & the teachers by getting involve w/ our childrens's education! We owe it to them!

Highland Elementary is a very good school. Last years school administration was well organized and plain awesome. This years administration since majority is new staff is unorganized not well equipped with school supplies and necessary books for children. If it wasn't for these dedicated teachers that are willing to buy supplies for these students, some students would not have required essentials or class materials. These teachers are great, adjusting to the kaos of having to teach new programs insisted by administration.
The administrative at Highland is awesome, but the area leaves a lot to be desired. The majority of the students are low income and thru my expierence the parents do not participate in anything. This school does not offer school productions and when they do it put on by the english learners dept and has all been done in Spanish. The administeration and teachers are really great, but if I had the choice I would put my child in a different school.
