My daughter started k5 this year and I thought this school would be great based on the reviews I read from this site. But unfortunatly my daughter is having an awful time. She as had on a few occasions other students steal out of her bookbag and heard language on the playground I do not tolerate. I feel like she is being held back b/c of the other studens inability to learn as well or fast as she can based on the fact that most of the students in her class cannot even speak ENGLISH!!! that is a major concern, I am all about hispanic children learning english but not to the expence of my child not learning.
Currently my son is in 2nd grade at Highland Park. He love the sschool and so do I! He also attended Kindergarten and 1st grade at HPES with the same great teachers, loving staff, and all around support and education our community has grown to expect from this great school. There is always activities going on that parents can get involved in from the carnivals to movie nights to classroom helpers. There is also a great emphasis on exercise and play time as well as academic requirements, teachings and rewards.
HPES is a very good school. Our son loves going there. The teachers are very helpful <our son has had a rough year personally with family> and are willing to talk with them and help them in any way possible. That makes us feel good as parents because we know that the teachers are willing to assist whether it be personal or school related. Awesome teachers!!!!
Myself and most of my cousin's attended Highland Park as kids. Now that we have kids of our own they also attend Highland Park. I personally think this is the best elementary school in Maury County. The staff is great.
Both of my children have attended Highland Park and they loved it! Many parents are involved through PTO, volunteer programs, scouts, etc. HPES also has technology, cross country, jump rope team, and music.The choir takes a yearly trip to compete against other schools. We love our Tigers!!
