New Parent Testimonial #5

"The whole student is not complete without the arts. We would not be fulfilling our mission as a school if we didn't have a robust arts program that served the entire student."

Michael Hughes, Highland's Artistic Director

New Parent Testimonial #3

"Lots of schools say it, but Highland School means it – not only do they nurture the whole child, but they appreciate each child's individuality."
