A certain un-named math teacher constantly yells at students and discriminates against students of color. My husband and I met with the principal about our concerns and they were ignored. We are pulling our children asap.
I have 4 children currently attending Highland Arts. We have had nothing but positive experiences in every facet of their education experience there. The teachers are all creative and caring. They reach out to my children in unexpected ways that make not only my kids feel loved and important, but also give me a sense of comfort. When you send your child off to be nurtured and taught by someone other than yourself for a good portion of the day, it is a huge blessing to know that the person they are with loves them enough to really know and understand them. That has been my experience with each and every teacher at Highland Arts. My kids love their teachers, the cafeteria workers, the aides, the office staff, the principal, their ELP teacher, music teacher, orchestra teacher, librarian, PE teacher, and every other adult they come into contact with at school. The school is warm, inviting and safe. We love Highland!
We've had all five of our children attend Highland Arts Elementary School from Kindergarten through sixth grade, which has amounted to a 16-year partnership with our neighborhood school. I've been a regular volunteer there that many years as well. Highland is a great place to learn and make friends. The school does a great job welcoming new students and putting parents to work where they want to serve. Our kids have gotten a fantastic education there and have loved their teachers and friends. I can't say enough good stuff about this school! One thing I've learned as a parent (and as a teacher) is the key ingredient to a child's success in school is involvement and communication with the parents. When parents care about education, generally their children do, too. Anytime a conflict has arisen at Highland, the teachers have been attentive to our concerns/needs. There was only one teacher out of dozens we've worked with who was not like this and she didn't last there long - only 2 years. That was a long time ago, too.
Our daughter attended Highland for two years. I give this school, staff and especially the principle an A+!! Our experiences with the school have been nothing but positive. Her teachers are in tune and fair with their students and the staff always treated me with respect and willingness to answer any questions or concern I might have. Keep up the good work.
