My nana used to work here. Her name was Mrs. Meinke. She retired, but she never stops talking about this school. I went there through all of elementary. I'm now in 7th grade. I realize now, that I couldn't have asked for a better school. Rachel Meinke

My son has attended this school since kindergarten and he is now in fourth grade. I have nothing but praises for the school, the office faculty and the teachers. My son has enjoyed his years here tremendously. Highland City is a growing school, hopefully it won't get away from its small town effect.
