My daughter just moved on to Lakeview this year after attending Highland. I feel that she is prepared to continue receving an excellent education. My son will be in the fourth grade this year and I look forward to another great year with the Highland Staff.
The new math program was a little hard to get used to as a parent at first but now I love it. It makes the think beyond the facts. They get to logically apply their basic knowledge to more challenging problems. The extracurricular activities are all available, but I would like to see more foreign language offered. They tried this for a while after school but it wasn't convenient. It needs to be part of the normal curriculum at this age level. The parents are greatly involved. You can always see a parent sitting in the hall helping out a child with reading (Ohio Reads Program) or homework. They get greatly involved with class parties, fundraisers, bookfairs. Its wonderful.
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.
