  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • A former student at Highland, Now I am a freshman. As a student here, I really enjoyed all the activities at this school. Although, I do not go there anymore, nor have I been there recently, I doubt much has changed. I had some Of the greatest teachers as far as I can remember. The Teachers really set up a nice envirement for this school and also for the kids surrounding it. This school, gave me hopes as a kid, to be someone in life, and go for your dreams! The staff is amazing, the food, everything! I hope some of the amazing teachers remember me. Peace.
