My child is now a 3rd grader here at highlands. It's been a wonderful experience since kindergarten for us as well as our child! I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

While our child's teacher was well meaning and personable, we regretted not selecting a home in a better school district. Teachers have very few resources, which are exclusively directed towards meeting Common Core reading and math standards. No computers in the classroom or foreign language program. ...  Read more

I would overall rate this school as being only worried about child attendance and money! The overall feeling at this school is that you must be there whether your child is sick or not so that the school gets the payment for your child being there. I have a teenager who has gone to many schools prior ...  Read more

My Son has been going to highlands from K-1st and will be entering 2nd grade. He loves his school and friends. My child ...  Read more

Highlands is a better elementary if you're comparing it to other Concord schools. The faculty seems fine. The office staff are okay. The curriculum and the District's support of teachers needs improvement. It seems that instruction is geared to 'teaching to the middle' to find a balance between higher ...  Read more

I attended this school and now have the pleasure of sending my kids there. I couldn't be more satisfied with the K-3 teachers. I really believe that these teachers are here because they enjoy seeing children learn and grow (which in my opinion is very important when doing an extremely tough job such ...  Read more
