Highland Elementary School 3

The teachers there are nice, and it seems like they care. However bullying is a major problem there. My son suffered from bullying for 2 years, we would tell the teacher and complain and it took them forever to resolve the problem. Nice school, but the bullying needs to be worked on.

The school is fantastic. The kids cleaning off their own tables at which they sat at is a good way to show them responsibilities and respect. The teachers work with,you and so does the princible. I think as a parent you should be involed in your childs life. If your kid is constantly getting into trouble at school, you as a parent needs to step it up at home. If your child is coming home sad everyday, you as a parent needs to step it up and call the schools.

I give this school 5 stars. The teachers are fantastic. Administration is strong. The principal listens to suggestions and she has made several positive changes. Strong PTO involvement. Many community and family involvement activities. This school is very safe with anti-bullying curriculum taught at every grade.

If I could give it zero stars I would. BAD school! They let kids get away with threats of harming other kids, Bullying is a MAJOR problem in this school. Some of the teachers are good and the Principal thinks she is the best, but really not! Removed my child from that school for so many reasons and so glad I did. Not the only parent that took their child out and sent them to another district. They would rather keep the bad kids than the good ones. They have the kids cleaning off the lunchroom tables which employees should be doing. Keep away and keep your kids safe.
