Highland High is an excellent school with great teachers and mountain views from within Salt Lake City.
Thoroughly unimpressed by this school it's administration, secretaries and teachers. There is little encouragement for students and even fewer resources for parents to advocate for their students manat times there were assignments given that would require specific computer programs or the internet to accomplish said assignment if you don't have the internet in your home or the computer program on your home computer you would be out of luck as there is not adequate access to school computers for economically disadvantaged students. The school resource officers foster an environment of civil liberty being striped from students. Bottom line unless your student is involved on the football team don't expect them to get a fair shake from teachers or administration.
Highland High School is one of the best schools in this valley! We have great teachers, great coaches, great students, and a excellent administration! GO RAMS
Great education. A lot of effort put into a great balanced education0
It has great teachers and students who get along and work with each other despite all their differences.

I have one finishing this year and one more to go the next. More or less the school has been good and I am a big beliver that you get out what you put in. But a lot of the last 4 years there were no books or they were very old (district or school issue?) A lot of the teachers do not take control of the classrooms and the ones that do, are so full with the students trying to get an education. Overall they seemed to be safe and most of the kids were great. I have seen both sides private and public school.
Highland High is wonderful, I love it! It has a lot of people, and wonderful sports! I've never been happier...
Highland High is an excellent place for your student to grow and mature to an adult. There are many activities for them to join and it will be the best and most important 4 years of their lives, so enroll at Highland if you want your kid to have a great highschool experience
Highland High is on the cutting edge of public education. Students have so many opportunities in so many areas! The recent addition of a world-class art gallery in the very center of the school is breath-taking. Three beautiful glass walls enclose some of the best quality student work around. Academics are first class and AP programs abound. My students have had a great experience so far and have great expectations for the future.
I am amazed at the quality of fine arts staff and their dedication to their students. Congratulations on just being named the SLCSD Fine Arts Academy. My child has had an excellent experience there and has a 4.0 with AP and Honors classes galore to choose from. 'Newsweek' magazine named it one of the top 100 schools in the country. We have a deep tradition of school spirit and a great football and rugby team. I am proud to have all of my children attend such a diverse, academically challenging high schoool. Go rams! We love the enthusiasm of the new school administration. How many principals do you know who would dress up in a scottish kilt and cheer with the cheer leaders? The kids love him! He is fun and strict with dress code and truancy. What a nice balance. Lori smith
Since the addition of a brand-new administration at Highland High, everything has improved. No one gets away with skipping class, it's a safer environment and I've never seen more school spirit in my life. Highland High is definitely one of the best schools out there now that things have changed for the better.
Highland High is one of the worst schools i have ever ben to. Safety in this school is low, there are kids slufing 24/7, walking down the halls and yelling out stuff while classes are in progress. And nobady seems to care for all of this, I mean there are classes so big that you can walk out of the cllass and teacher would never notice. I know all of this becuze I went to this school, and if you are planning to put your kid in this school I wouldnot reccomend to do so.
textbooks outdated, inadequate funding from government, teachers salaries too low( you get what you pay for) rudeness and intolerance abound.(Must come from the top) Utah spends more money on paving roads then it does on education.
