Map of Highlands Elementary School address.

My daughter was at Highlands Elementary from K to 5. She went from being an average student who struggled with reading to an above average honor roll student with a middle school reading level. The school has a spectacular reading program for struggling readers, and also makes an effort not to teach only for high test scores. The TAKS info is integrated into regular lesson plans instead of the kids just spending the year doing TAKS practice tests. It is reflected in the schools high test scores which are well above state average, and also makes school more varied and exciting for students.

Highlands is a good school that prepares students for Texas tests. For students that may have behavior problems or deficient grades, Highlands will focus on them and give extra attention. For students that are average, no motivation is given to excel.

Highlands Elementary has dedicated teachers and principals that care about children. My son, a special education student with minor learning disabilities was treated with kindness and patience.Teachers were always willing to work with us and do what was best for our son.

The teachers at this school are wonderful! The special education staff is completely dedicated to improving the educational performance of all of their students. They work with each student, challenging them just enough to show improvements on a steady basis. They support each student to the fullest extent possible in the regular education environment as well. I cannot say enough about the great teachers at this school.

Highlands is a great school! My son has been going to Highlands ever since Kindergarten. He is a very shy boy and the teachers help him open up and now he is eager to learn, loves his teachers and loves homework! They also have the best funraisors.

I transfered to Highlands and it is a great school. The principal has a no nonsense approach to running the school and she is fair to all; students, parents and teachers. She runs a tight ship and everyone knows what to expect. The teachers follow her lead and they too work to teach the children. I expect a lot from teachers and they delivered more! I hope they realize that parents appreciate their effort even if we don't get to show them often enough. We need our kids educated not entertained in the schools. Highlands Elem keeps this goal in sight. They have more academically inclined work for students than fluff programs. I can work with their structured environment even though I have to conform better than the chaotic environment at other neighborhood schools where nothing seems to get done as they try to do everything all at once.
