The school has what is called the 'pillars of character.' Every month, a student in each class is recognized for one of these pillars such as 'trustworthiness,' 'honesty' and others. It is a great way for the students to aspire to high moral standards at a young age.
The teachers and the overall learning atmosphere are good.. the current principal needs to be more attentive to bulllying and student teasing . He is a bit lax about taking on those types of problems and tends to blow parents off.
The quality of academic programs are excellent. They push the kids hard, which may or may not be good for your child. Parent involvement is high and expected. There are good extracurricular activities as long as the parent involvement remains high.
Solana Highlands is a highly rated elementary school. Through a special foundation funded primarily by parents, extra music art and sports programs are funded that would not ordinarily be funded through state tax dollars. Parents are involved as volunteers on the playground and also to help teachers provide one on one assistance with students.
