A Message from Our Principal

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Highlands Elementary School website. At Highlands, we know that our students’ success is directly related to the partnership we share with our Highlands parents and families, so we appreciate and encourage family involvement and have strong programs in place to help our families and students get involved and feel supported. Our goal at Highlands is to provide a well-rounded program that meets the educational, social, emotional, and physical needs of all children. We know that all families have dreams for their children and want the best for them; we want the same. Welcome to Highlands!
