Highlands Grove Elementary is an incredible place to send my child. I am more than satisfied with the collective efforts put forth in educating my child. The administration is visible and actively involved with the parents and students. The secretaries are efficient and friendly. Guidance and the nurse are readily available to meet the needs of the children. The teachers are highly qualified and eager to teach. The cafeteria is a pleasant place to eat and socialize. The grounds and classroom are clean, orderly, and beautiful to look at. The support staff goes above and beyond the call of duty. The children have opportunities weekly for the arts. Physical education is fun yet challenging. HGE meets the needs of ALL children from the struggling child to the gifted. They offer many extracurricular opportunities as well like chess, ITV, chorus, strings, Japanese, and much, much more. I am thankful for ALL HGE has done for my child and will miss this school greatly as my child moves on to 6th grade next year.
Highlands Grove Elementary is a high energy, loving, and academically challenging school in South Lakeland. This school goes above and beyond making sure each child succeeds the expectations of his/her grade level, then pushes harder when the children reach their goals. I am a very proud parent, and would be lost without the love from the teachers and staff.
Highlands Grove, in existence five years (since 2007), is a great school for all students. They have made great improvements in struggling students and provided great challenges for excelling students. They have maintained a state "A" rating all five years. They search for ways to help all children "belong" and love school. Discipline, structure and standards are important here. Parents are welcome to participate in many activities. The school climate is warm, happy, supportive, fun.
