As with any school, there are a few teacher who are not able to adjust to different student needs, but overall I have been very please with the quality of the teaching staff. Several of the teachers are extraordinarily good!!!
My son has found the High school to be a place he can explore different interests and grow in leadership. He is in Football, Spanish Honor Society, NHS, Choir, etc.! The Catholic spiritual formation is a strong support for us as Christian parents. They have the boys and girls separated for core classes, but get to mix in Choir and AP classes- the best of both worlds!
My daughter has excelled in every way at The Highlands School. Not only is she receiving a top-notch college preparatory education, but she has excellent opportunities to grow in other ways, including athletics, theater, choir and student leadership. She is supported in her spiritual formation and with service opportunities. The atmosphere of the school is loving and caring, with many wonderful families, and my daughter is very happy. We are very blessed to be at The Highlands School and willingly make the 25-mile drive to bring her there.
We have been at The Highlands School for 9 years. We currently have 2 children at the school, with our oldest graduating from there last year. We have been through every grade from Pre-k thru 12th grade. What a blessing this school has been for our family! THS has a strong Catholic identity, with Priests and Consecrated women working directly with our children everyday! The character formation and values that our college bound student received has been invaluable with the experiences and friendships she has formed in college. What a great foundation to fall back on! Class sizes are small, academics are strong and students can be in any sport (sometimes multiple sports) that they choose! I highly recommend checking out The Highlands School!
My 5th grader just started at The Highlands in the fall. We looked at 4 Catholic schools in Dallas area and ultimately chose The Highlands because they offer 1) a robust 3 season school-sponsored sports program (DPL league) 2) same gender classes starting in 4th grade up through HS (no other co-Ed school in Dallas area offers this!) 3) it's PK - 12 so we don't need to change school and 4) the formation is incredible and true, not staged. No matter how much research you do on schools, checking reviews, conferring with friends/neighbors... You never really know how you're going to like the school until you're there. I am so pleased with The Highlands and feel lucky that we are there. We drive 25 minutes from Dallas to get there and it's worth it.
