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.

This school so diversed and the spirit week assembly is the most funnest assembly of the year! to freak east! amazing! highland high is a place where we come not only to just get an education but also meet new wonderful people! i am i junior graduating next year and its been so amazing! we dont have cliques like east and west and surely do not haze like they do!!!!! are school we like to mingle and just have fun but also get an education! all my older sibblings came here and now i am the last! we have so many extra curricular and so many clubs!!!! so i say before you take your kids to east or west!!! come see what highland has to offer!!!
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.
