Highcliff El School 5

The Teachers and Principal all know the students names and are very involved. You can tell they truly love children and it shows when my kids come home from school or when they are simply playing with others on the playground. The small school in a quiet neighborhood is just what we wanted with a focus on the children and their educations rather than their social status. The teachers are very committed and seem to be involved in and out of school. Math is a focus for our family and I've seen very positive results with the system the school implemented this year. Very beautiful new school with amazing computers in and out of the classrooms.

Highcliff Elementary is a great neighborhood school consisting of about 200 students. It's secluded within a neighborhood, not close to the busy road at all. Nearly all the students know each other regardless of which grade they're in. The Book Of The Month Language To Literacy program is a school-year-long program that incorporates cross grade activities, field trips and assemblies/events to the current book the school is reading. I would not want my children to be anywhere else but Highcliff Elementary!!!!!
