All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I have two children who attend this school. My first child has went to other schools who didn't seem to care about the children. Here the staff meets you ever morning and evening, they are also always working so hard with the students. My children think that school is like a second home and they love going there, that should say volumes about what kinda school it is.

My son has attended this school since it first opened. The teachers and staff are friendly and helpful at all time.

My children have attended HES since it opened. They have gotten a wonderful education and are very involved in school activities including sports and the academic team. The principal now is not a personable person, but he is by no means rude or cruel to the students. Teachers are exceptional!

My child attended this school for a period of six months before I transferred him to PES. The principal is uncaring and likes to intimidate both children and parents. He is what I would describe as disrespectful and rude. The teachers my child had were not much better, things I discussed with them at open house were immediately forgotten the minute I walked out the door. The curriculum was not very impressive either. The afterschool daycare program was exceptional, and the school was clean but beyond that, it was a horrible experience for my child. His work vastly improved after just one week at his new school and so did his views on school in general. Parent involvement was not supported, if anything it was discouraged. Parent opinions, input and concerns were treated with open disdain.

My daughter is in the 5th grade and I have found the teachers and principal to be very caring and supportive. The principal has always treated me with respect and fairness. Go Wildcats!

My children enrolled in Highland Elementary last year and I love the enthusiasm of the faculty and staff. My children felt special and that makes me happy. The principal makes EVERYBODY follow the rules and I feel that makes for a safe and fair environment not only for my children, but for all of them.

My childs K and 1st grade teachers were awesome! The principal is awful. From my experience does not care for the kids or parents and loves to use intimidation with the kids. This puts us in a bind because we feel as though we can not speak to the principal about teacher problems because he doesnt care.

Teachers are excellent. They spend long hours and really care about the kids they teach. The principal does not care about teachers, parents, or students like he should. He is not there as often as he should be and does not treat teachers or parents with kindness. Parents want to be part of the school, but often express feelings that they are not appreciated or welcome. I would send my kids there simply because of the great teachers, hoping the rest would get better.
