Highland has a special need preschool program that is outstanding. The school as a whole is very family oriented and I must say, they go above and beyond to help each and every child to reach for the stars, overcoming any and all obstacles.

Highland Elementary is a peaceful place. An oasis for children to learn and flourish. My child has made great gains in reading and math since attending Highland. They offer more than just education. They offer dental care, a children's hospital health care mobile unit, and the adopters provide bookbags and supplies, coats and hats, as well as many arts programs provided by CAPA. There are after school programs, tutoring, and also a proficiency Saturday school. The teachers are well educated and nurturing. The building is colorful and welcoming!

MOst of the teachers are very dedicated to the student's education. Mrs. Leach is doing a wonderful job with the staff and student body. Mrs. Leach has also incorporated a very healthy and safe envirnoment for the students to learn. Parent involvement is very low, but there are 3 very dedicated women who are trying to make that change. Hopefully by the end of the 2005 school year parent involvement will be up and active. The children's extracurricular activities are strong in the areas of art, music, and gym, as well as the book swap. The book swap is a great resource for the children to enhance their reading capabilities. The librarian is also a very important resource to the childrens literacy needs.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
