Highland Elementary School
Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

As a teacher it is hard to be as effective as you would like to be without the support of an effective leader. The school is ran as a dictatorship.

Amount of homework: Just right

I can only speak for myself, but the reality is out of 33 students roughly eight complete their homework.

Every year the majority of my class was not performing at grade level, and every year these same kids are just passed on to the next grade level without reviewing the help they truly need from each teacher and support staff each year.

Develops empathy: Strongly disagree

A compassionate response to children being physically abused by another student on a daily basis would be to respect he student and parent concerns and fin a proper placement for the student, so all students could learn in a safe environment. My students were not provided a safe academic environment to learn in. No one felt safe. This is unacceptable.

My stud to wear allowed to be abused by thief classmate daily. When these behaviors were reported by students and myself nothing was done about it. Furthermore, my students with IEPS never once properly received their services throughout the year, and the children know this is wrong.

Teachers Care about their students! Kindergarten are learning how to read write and spell. Wonderful staff from the principal to the janitors.

Highland is an excellent school. The teachers really care about their students and work hard to make sure that the students are working hard, too. My children are in kindergarten, but both are already reading much higher than expected.

being a former student at highland id have to say that the school is not really the best but not the worst. they dont really offer any after school activities worthy of going to and teacher wise, some teachers are really good and some are not so great. i also had to rush my lunch time because they only give you about 10-15 minutes to eat lunch. all in all this school is just ok
