Highland Middle School1

The bullying in this school is completely out of controll. When you request to speak to the principal you are always sent to the counsellor. I have spoke to many parents at this school who all say the same thing. Kids are not afraid to be disrespectful to teachers during class due to low disciplinary action taken by staff.
My daughter was only there a month and started getting bullied. I complained to the school many times and no results, she was sent to a counsler. the bullying continued for 8 months. I kept complaining to the school, nothing. I went to the superintendent still nothing done. Finally talked to the principal and that wasnt helpful. So glad school is over!
I feel that the principal and staff at Highland Middle school make every effort to educate, support and be aware of their students. Our transition from Private to Public school has been very smooth and positive. I would like to see a stronger music program, the high school has a wonderful music program, but the middle school does not seem to attract the students to feed into the high school.
I really like this school. I like the fact that it is small and the teachers know all the kids real well. Some things could change like the homework policy but other than a few small things, i enjoy this school and im glad my son attends it.
