Highlands Christian School; formerly Temple Christian School has turned out an alarming rate of responsible citizens in Polk Co. and elsewhere. They are excellent in academics, their students are a year advanced over the public school system. They are sheltered from the behavorial problems that a public school has to tend to due to their proffesional discipline standards, which is greatly attributed to their academics. Children are nurtured in activities that render them responsible and in the case of discipline the children are learned to take the consequences in a responsible manner. Rev. Jimmy Richardson was a teacher in the school nearly 30 years ago and is now the Principal and Pastor of the Church. Years of loving the children that are cared for makes the school honorable. The children get cared for if they are lacking in a particular subject. They are not just passed on, whatever disability a child may have at the time the problem is diagnosed, is the exact time the problem begins to be dealt with. Solutions are implemented, and the child is taught to apply himself so that the solution will be productive. The Christian School has a fine sports program that is entertaining to both the spectators and the players. Sports is a way of teaching life skills and the school does that. Over all the school is the best school in Lakeland. Thankyou for you time.
