Academics at Highland


Since our founding in 1928, Highland School has prepared students for life-long success. Today, this means that we challenge our students with a rigorous curriculum focused on preparing our students for college and beyond.

Individualized and Student-Centered

From the first days of Pre-Kindergarten to the end of Grade 12 at Highland School, our college preparatory education is individualized and student-centered. Mapped across all grades, Highland’s curriculum is cohesive, expansive, and solidly skills-based. Teachers are trained to adapt their teaching to a wide range of learning styles.

For students who need more individualized attention, Highland School offers the Learning Center. The Learning Center is comprised of a staff of full-time educators who train, tutor, challenge, and advocate for students of all abilities.

As a Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 independent school, Highland serves the academic needs of a wide range of ages and an even broader range of abilities with a strong focus on diversity. Our students quickly discover that there are no limits to what they can achieve. With a supportive and student-centered environment, all of our students needs are met. Where do you fit in?
