PreK3 last year, starting education with the right foot, the best decision as parents we could had made, our daughther is growing in both areas, academicaly and growing in the love of God. The THS is like a big family and we are happy to be part of it.
My daughter has been attending the school for past 5 years now, and we have had an excellent experience with the school. Not only are they imparting a leading edge education to our daughter, but are also instilling the life values in her to make her an excellent human being. They have high quality educators at every level to guide and mould the young minds into independent thinkers and high achievers.
We are parents of a 4th grade boy and a 2nd grade girl. We love everything about the school. Fee quite low compared to some of the highly reputed schools in Dallas area resulting in high student to teacher ratio. However, the school still manages to train children with good values and education, thanks to the wonderful community spirit amongst parents and teachers.
We have been at The Highlands School for the past 7 years. I am continually impressed with the academics of the school and the compassion and knowledge of their Religious support staff. The principal is passionate about education and the team at THS carries the schools mission of 'always higher'. I could not of found a better school for my children and my family.
This is our second year at THS. I am very impressed with the rigorous academics and commitment to Catholic values. The average class size is 16 to 18 but our son has 12 in his class this year. The individual attention given by his teacher is amazing. She knows each child's learning preference and works hard to help each child succeed. Our first grader is reading at a third grade level thanks to the excellent foundation in phonics provided by his Kindergarten teacher. They read in small groups of 4 to 5 with a teacher. The top readers can practice material above grade level while other students get on grade level reading every day. Math in the lower school is by the Saxon method. In addition to nightly fact sheets, there is a worksheet covering math theory and concepts. Handwriting is taught in the younger grades and helps provide a good foundation for life. I am so impressed by the school's commitment to the building blocks of education. Phonics, math facts and handwriting are mastered by first grade so each year builds so such a wonderful foundation. My son is also taught compassion, respect and love for others. THS is a blessing for my son!
We have been at THS for 6 years. My son's Moral, Academically and Spiritual Formation are the best; As a Catholic School is one of the best in Texas. Thank you to all the Teachers, Priest, Consecrated, Staff and Employees for your dedication, time, effort you give to the school and the Families. God Bless you all.
The Highlands is a near perfect fit for my two high school students. They have undergone a huge transformation in the last few years. Academics are strong and the students are more than ready for college. The formation is incredible and the teachers spend an immense amount of time with students who need help as well as students who are working through AP classes. The Highlands is different, special and worth a look.
We have 3 children at The Highlands School. What is important to us and what we have found in The Highlands is the strong character formation, morals, values and academics. It is a true Catholic school in every sense of the word. The teachers are excellent, the class sizes are small and the academics are rigorous. The Priests and Consecrateds are a constant presence in the hallways. As our senior prepares to graduate and enter this crazy world, we feel confident in her abilities and the strong, God-filled young woman she has become, in large part, due to her formation at The Highlands.
This is a dirty school in disrepair and though the tuition is outrageous, it is obvious most of the families pay little or no tuition. It's a no don't go to families of means.
We have been at THS for the last two years. And I strongly recommend the school. It is the place where my children want to be. They really enjoy the environment, the espiritual support and moral values are fantastic. We are building as a family excellent men and women for the future.
We have three children (7th, 3rd and entering PK3) at The Highlands, our experience at the school has been great. Our children love their school and admire their teachers. As parents we beleive they are being academicaly challenged but more importantly also receive great character and spiritual formation from PK on. The precence of Legionary priests and Consecrated Women is a tremendous example and inspiration for the children as well as resource for us as parents. Overall, we are very pleased with the school and recommend it highly.
We have four children at The Highlands- soon to be five as of this year! Our children are genuinely excited to attend school every day! The Lower School is solid and challenging, the teachers competent and encouraging and available. I am continually impressed as I see the high school students set good role models for and behave kindly to the younger children. As parents, we are looking forward to- and expecting- a solid Middle School these next few years. The presence of the Legionary priests and Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi have been a blessing to our family in many many ways. Confession and daily Mass is a huge blessing. The academics are challenging and the formation solid.
I am a seventh grade student at The Highlands School. I started in PreK3 many years ago! There is Confession all the time. I love going to Mass and Communion Service every day. I have really enjoyed all of my teachers. It is easy to stay after school and to ask for help with things I don't understand. I am so glad I am not in a public school. The Highlands School is a really wonderful place.
My children have been at THS for three years and they cannot wait to go to school everyday. The teachers are caring, well-educated, and genuinely care about the formation of the students. The spiritual formation is superb and the community is a wonderful loving family that reaches out with unparalleled generosity and support to all those within it. We are blessed to be a part of this wonderful community and our children's lives are clearly richer for it.
It has the best environment for kids Pk to High School, Great Catholic education... we love it....
The Highlands School is a very good school. The children not only gt a great academic education but they learn to be leaders as well. the school teaches so much more than how to get an A ina class room. they teach and form the young minds to be great people and behave with confidence.
A woman s intuition can go a long way, but when shopping for a school, wife and husband need to make an informed choice. My instincts about Highlands were quite positive and this impression was confirmed when my son had the chance to shadow at the school a few years ago. He simply said, Yeah, mom, I like it. The classes and teachers are good and the classmates are friendly, not phony. Ever since we ve been involved at Highlands and have seen our children grow and compete smartly in all endeavors. In short Highlands offered our kids a quality education and they ve responded! We give high marks to Highlands.
The Highlands School community is unique. I've never been at a school that is so much like a family. The smaller size allows members of the community to get to know each other better. Parents know the teachers, students know the administrators and everyone is approachable. The small class sizes allow the students to really form a close knit group of friends that includes everyone. It is really a family!
The Highlands School has been a beautiful school community! It truly is a family environment. Each person is welcomed and cared for no matter who they are: parent, teacher, student, staff member, visitor...each person has a place in this community. It is academically rigorous but also focuses on character development and, as it is a Catholic school, spiritual development. Each child is cared for, loved and respected. It is more than just a school: it's a lifestyle. I highly encourage you to check out the schools website: www.thehighlandsschool.org for more information!
I have been at the Highlands for a year and have been impressed by the dedication, commitment, and love that I see my colleges teach and work every day. I am thankful for being here and am proud to call myself a member of the Highlands team. The academic standard to which the students are held has always been good, but was raised this past year and there are more improvements marked for the start of the fall semester. I highly recommend this school.
