It is a great school my daughter is in 7th grade there and has been there ever since 3rd grade! My son is in 2nd in a public school and I am putting him back in the Highlands because of the love and support I get there I get at The Highlands!
My children have been at THS for 6 years. I have seen alot of growth in leadership and the faculty over the years. We couldn't be happier! The formation my children receive have made them such strong individuals. We have a great family atmosphere at THS, the chilren, teachers, staff and administation all work together to make this the BEST school in the metroplex!
Our 3 children have been going to THS since they were in PreK which has been over 9 years. This school has provided a wonderful educational environment with a low student/teacher ratio and emphasis on critical thinking, self-reliance, spirituality/formation and self-confidence. Not to mention that almost every family we have had the pleasure to get to know, has had the same goals for their children as we have. Because of this, it's comforting to know that our children are receiving consistant messages in our home, at the school and from the parents of their friends which, as we all know, is a rare thing in today's world. The Administration, staff and teachers are wonderful especially the dynamic Fr. Alfonse who has BIG plans for the future of the school! We hope you will consider sending your children to THS!
Aside from the strong academics and formation the Highlands offers a sense of community and more importantly a devotion demonstrated by the faculty to both the students and their families. One doesn't realize the tranquil and respectful atmosphere the campus maintains until you are somewhere else and experience what the majority of students in this country's schools are like. That is an unfortunate fact and it is not lost on me that my family is extremly lucky to be able to send our child to a private school; however my husband never attended a private school and after the Highlands he will never send any of our children to the public schools no matter what it takes to pay the tuition. I am pleased with the changes the school has undergone and I look forward to the future. Thank you.
I have been at the Highlands for several years now and have enjoyed every minute of it. We have beautiful families and students as well as dedicated and qualified faculty and staff members. As a student very aptly put it, 'the Highlands isn't just a school - it is a lifestyle.'
I have 2 children at The Highlands School. We could not be happier with the academic, social, and formation aspects of the school. After reading many of the reviews, it is true that there have been many changes in recent years....ALL for the BETTER. The tuition is reasonable, comparing costs to other private schools....I am looking forward to my 2 children progressing thu the lower school, and eventually, graduating from the Highlands School....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
excellent place for children to be educated as well as learn moral values and the Catholic faith
Parents beware! this school is horrible. They treated by child horribly. They have a very high turnover of students, as well as, faculty. The after school program is a joke. They have no knowledge of appropriate child behavior. Everything a child does and says is always miscontrued as evil and dirty. The best thing I ever did was to remove my children from this potentially harmful environment.
I would strongly not recommend this school. Some teachers do not care for their students education and/or safety. Administration does not listen to parent concerns/complaints. I will not be sending my children back to this school.
If you want your child to be well rounded in academic, character, and spiritual, The Highlands School is where you want your child to be.
The education given at this school is just amazing. My children are all young, from pre-k to grade 5 and each year here at The Highland School only gets better. Outstanding teachers and academics. Thats why I pay from them to go to private school!
I recieved an excellent education when I atteded the highlands school. The teacher really care about the students and the other staff members are highly involed with every thing at the school. The sports program is always growing and getting better every year. I will send my future children there.
My kids loved it on the other hand I must also admit administration is poor and teacher morale is low.
After 5 yrs we have been very pleased with the school, especially the formation, academics, parent involvement, and overall feel of the school. There has quite a bit of change in leadership, but all for the good.
Wouldn't recommend for the larger family with children of differing abilities as the school's acceptance of some of their children but not the others can create a division as well as extreme inconvenience on the family as a whole. A good choice for the student who excels academically and desires a small school environment.
Great formation program. Good academics. Orthodox catholic. Programs growing.
As with many schools, there are a few core families that are consistently involved with the school. Unfortunately, the school continuously asks these core families to do more and more. This may be a product of the fact that school enrollment has dropped significantly (down almost 9% from last year). It is unclear who is leading the school, the executive director or the director & directress of formation. In their typical unilateral way, changes were made regarding schedules that should have included at least one educator such as the principal. If you are looking for a school that communicates poorly and accepts mediocrity as the norm, this is the school for you.
A very catholic school. Students trive in the love the teacher have for them. My kids love the school.
