We love love Highland school!! My 3 children have had 6 amazing years here - I was actually sad when my oldest moved onto Dodd ( which turns out is also fantastic!!). we've had stellar teachers each year. I know there are some who complain of their kids being "bullied" by staff, which is so sad, as it's just not true. These are the children that really should have IEP's - but parents wont accept any responsibility for their childrens actions, harming them in the long run. Always blaming others for years and years will NOT fix the issues at hand. We have had our issues of course, like most people, but Mrs.Scully was on top of things, and had great follow up. We are equally excited that Mrs. Bordonaro is now the VP, can't say enough about her.
We are having a 5th fabulous year at Highland. The minor issues I have had in the past have been taken care of immediately and followed up upon by the principal. Each and every teacher we have had have been truly wonderful, looking forward to a few more years now that my youngest will enter highland next year. I feel it's the best school in the district, hands down.
My child is having a very hard time at this school, being bullied by TEACHERS and other kids! went to the principle, and the counselor. Nothing happened. Her academics have gotten worse too. At this school you should not have any concerns or else the staff will treat you even worse!
Highland for special needs children is an amazing school. Our child has made more advancements here in 2 years than his entire 9 year life. I would highly recommend it to any special needs parents.
I think is over rated. # of my children went to highland and were struggling. The teachers that my kids for most of the grades were not very helpful. Some were even annoyed that they were struggling. Some teachers made my kids feel very uncomfortable. They did poorly on their CMTs. We moved to another town and switched schools. My kids were immediately taking in by these teachers in the hamden school system. All of the teachers so far havebeen nuturing and very caring and interested in my childrens growth and knowledge. There CMT scores have risen to average and above average. 2 of my kids are straight A's and on levels 7 and 9. I couldn't ask for more. I do wish they recieved the help early on while in Highland but I am thankful thatthey are doingas well as they are.
