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.

Great place to work...rigor and expectations of the students are raised and getting higher....Highland was most recently ranked in the top ten school in Camden County and nothing has changed (school demographics) except for teacher expectations...they care about the students and truly step up to the challenge of educating all!!!

I was a former teacher. No matter what is said, Test scores are horrible. Sadly, this is a reflection on the educational model at Highland where a less rigorous approach to education is implemented. Teachers cannot teach when administrators who will not address repeated discipline problems in the the classroom. While the movement in NJ seems to eliminate the 'D" grade so students fail if they don't achieve a 'C' Highland wants to eliminate the 'Zero" Preventing teachers from giving a grade less than a 'D'. To teachers dismay, the emphasis at highland is on Social Skills and not Academics

I am a former student and now current teacher at Highland High School. I had a great experience here and was involved in many clubs and sports. The school has truly grown into a close knit community. I am proud to say I was and still am a Tartan. The opportunities are endless and so is the dedication the administration and staff show to each student.

I feel that my time at Highland High School was not as useful as it would have been at a cathlic school like PVI or Bishop H. Even though the school is very well put together, it does not seem like there are too many kids getting into IV league colleges. I'm sorry to the kids who don't realize this like I didn't, but others should take this into consideration.

i graduated from highland 2 years ago, and looking at the school now it seems like it is going down hill, the students are just geting worse and worse. there has to be some way to get the students to care more, and give it their all.

I am a former student of Highland. I feel Highland is a good school. I was offered many opportunities to expand my education (honors classes, dual credit programs) that have definitely enhanced my college experience as well as made high school more memorable. The staff is great, and students who excel are rewarded with the Renaissance program. However, as with all schools dealing with teenagers, there should be more programs or people skilled to deal with typical adolescent social problems. I reached out to guidance counselers and teachers more than once and was never really given help. Overall though ~a positive high school experience.
