Highland is a family, not just a school. Everyone is loving and truly cares about our kids. Personally have 3 kids who attend. Definitely excellent academics, & many sports offered, Christ-centered environment, I honestly wouldn't choose anywhere else for my kids to go. Love that it's a unit school, pre-K to 12th grade!!! My kids all started in Pre-K and grown up at HBCS. I now I have 1 junior, 1 freshman and 1 first grader. Thank you Highland for preparing my children for life and teaching the truth.

Attending Highland has been a great experience for me. The teachers and administration are a wonderful Christ-like influence on the students. The curriculum is wonderful and the students are academically excelled because of it. I recommend this school if you are looking for an awesome education and a safe, Christian environment for your kids.

Most of the teachers at HBCS are wonderful but there are some serious deficiencies in the administration. I do not recommend this school if you expect the school leadership to practice what they preach.

I have 2 children that attend HBCS and both of my children love the school! The entire staff is wonderful! They use Abeka curriculum and my children finished Pre-K reading and writing in cursive. The best part about the school is that it is God centered! WOW - A+++

My children were very lucky to have attended HBCS. When we moved, not only were my children overly prepared for the following grades, they were put in the gifted program. The program was great. The teachers were wonderful. The curriculuim was student and parent friendly. The only thing that I dreaded was the constant fund raisers.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
