We have an amazing dedicated teaching staff and fantastic administrators! This school is committed to helping all children learn in a kind and caring environment. Communication between families and school is always emphasized. The PTA is very active and supportive to staff. Our new principal is knowledgeable, caring and always available. I would like my children to attend this school; it is one of the very best in Manchester!

I loved going to this school I attended this school for kindergarten - grade 5. The teachers are nice. The only Thing I hate about this school is even if only a few kids misbehave the whole class gets disiplined durning recess time. Other than that I think this is the best elemantry school in sau 37.

This school and its educators leave a lot to be desired. However the PTA and parents are very active if you can fit in w them. Don't expect to be told anything you will always have to find out yourself. If things don't come home or get to school be prepared for your child to be blamed even tho more often then not its the teacher who loses the papers or just never hands them out. They say they do not punish the group when a few students misbehave but that is not the case at all. So if there are problem kids in your childs class who will not listen the class as a whole is usually penalized. But when confronted they always deny that from happening. The class size is far to big and if your child needs or has a 504 plan or IEP believe that it will not be followed nor will your child be provided with whats in it. Alot of the teachers just don't care. Not to mention they hv such high number of students in each class w 10 or more on 504 plans and IEP's in reality how can they teach all of those kids differently then all the others. So its not exactly their fault but regardless of that the school as a whole is very lacking. Manchester school district is not a good school district.

We love this school! The principal, assistant principal and PTA are very involved. Teachers are available, and the children are in a very safe place and are encouraged to enjoy the learning process. 2 kids in, we are very happy!

I am very happy as is my child at Highland Goffes Falls. As stated below I don't really like the open air concept of the classrooms. But, somehow they make it work. I enjoy all the family activities they have to offer. If I had to change anything it would be the walls and the lack of playground supplies/equipment.

Mr. Paul is a wonderful principal. He really cares about the children and parents. If I had to say one negative thing about this school it's the open concept. I have a child with difficulty concentrating and I think the openess of the school distracts him. But I really like the education that he is receiving.

Of all the schools in sau 37 HGF outshines them all. As a former casemanager for severely emotionally disabled kids and a mother to a son who has a disability I could not choose a better enviroment for my son. They actually listen to me..and Mr. Paul thinks that the child comes first(how novel) Love the school, love the principal and my son's team.

This school is execellent! The teacher welcome you into the classrooms to volunteer. My child has liked all of her teachers. I think the kindergarten needs to be longer than 2 and half hours but the teachers pack a lot into that time. Great School in Manchester!

This school is fantastic. The principal is so dedicated to the kids I cant say enough how wonderful it is to have someone you know is devoted to my childrens education. There are a couple of teachers that the school could do without but all in all I just love this school.

I teach at Highland and as a member of the staff am very involved with parents. My staff members work hard and are committed to student learning. We are also open to working with parents to improve their children's/child's learning.

This is a school where the principal is 'all about the students'. Parents are always welcome to join in helping in various commitees or classroom assitance. My children have/are attending and we always feel welcomed. Each year I see ways in which the school has improved.
