The school's principal, Mr. Galasso, rewards students every month that 'Do The Right Thing'! My son wears his t-shirt proudly!

There are some excellent, loving, inspirational, and motivated teachers at this school. BUT there are a few teachers that abuse their power over their students and rely on shame as a teaching tool. The adults supervising lunch and recess need to be trained. Yelling and shaming students on a daily basis is an antiquated teaching technique. As a community, we should expect better from the adults that are with our children on a daily basis. We should require the principal to protect our children and to promote an environment of respect and general welfare. Respect and common courtesy need to be given to the students in order to teach these attributes. Highland needs to become a kinder more respectful environment.

Highland Elementary is such a wonderful school. With it's small class sizes the teachers can really give every child the attention they deserve. Every year they have a cultural fair which transforms the school into a museum built by the parents. It is a place where evry teacher knows almost every child and no face is a stranger. Like all schools these days our buildings are in disrepair, all our efforts are directed towards the kids so they get a great education. I would love to see our community rally behind our schools and help make the much needed repairs. I went to these schools as a child and am proud that my two children are going there as well.

Small town school and atmosphere. All the kids know one another and they interact well. Teachers are hands on and communicate well with both parents and kids.

Excellent community of teachers, support staff and families. Major improvements and increased energy have been an encouraging plus to the school environment. My children have been thriving at Highland School! MPHS recently received an award as a top performing high school in the state. We have much to be proud of in this small town!

Teachers make a difference in the learning of a student. Make the subjects interesting and follow it with upbeat teaching methods and you have a win win situation. Highland school is the home of 3 generations in my family. Keep up the good work and make the residents of MP proud.

The Godwin School is simply dreadful. Although their may be a few good teachers there, we saw no evidence of it. The only thing we experienced was unprofessionalism, and unseemly behaviour which is encouraged by the principal.
