Our Mission

The mission of Highland School is to provide a demanding academic and co-curricular program that develops the skills and character essential for students to meet the challenges of college and leadership in the twenty-first century.

To carry out this mission, Highland School has assembled thoroughly modern facilities, a large, diverse, and highly qualified staff, a student body ready to meet the challenges, and an academic philosophy and strategy that makes maximum use of these resources.

The School seeks students who are intellectually curious. Students are selected on the basis of academic potential, without regard to race, color or creed. Entrance to the school is based on the candidate's academic level and aptitude and on his or her ability to work as an individual as well as cooperatively in group settings.
