Nothing has been done to help stop bullying in this school. 0/10
This is what the administration says that they want every student to achieve:We Believe... All children can be leaders All children have genius All children can create change All children are in charge of their learning All children have voiceWe believe in developing the whole child.They lied... this school does not know what to do with kids with needs, trauma, behavior problems or delays. The teachers are good but they have NO support from their administrators. It is very sad that the kids who need patience, kindness and understanding are let down the most. This school was a very big disappointment. We will not be attending next year.
We were originally zoned for a different elementary school. After the county did a massive elementary school rezoning, we were zoned Highlands. At first I was disappointed because we had anticipated the other school, but I quickly became GRATEFUL for the change. Highlands is an amazing school, with fantastic, creative teachers who adore my kids, and a principal dedicated to student success. This year, they started a school-wide program based on "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey, incorporating these leadership skills throughout the curriculum. My kids understand it in K and 1st grade. They are also giving students age-appropriate leadership opportunities throughout the school. My kids have been thrilled with their opportunities. There is a real focus on teaching 21st century skills here, including computer work in the classroom. We are so pleased with Highlands that, even though we eventually want to move to a neighboring suburb, we won't move until our kids finish elementary school.
Love this school!! Check out the FCAT ratings!! Parents are very actively involved and the teachers are great!
