10 Parent Reviews for Highland Terrace Elementary School
This school is a great place to send your children for a number of reasons. It is important that all children have an opportunity to have an education and Highland Terrace has taken steps to ensure that both advanced and struggling students are challenged or helped accordingly, while not digressing to

Many of the teachers are task minded in challenging the children at all levels, while the overall approach of the school is targeting parent engagement, which many studies indicate is where children's true opportunity of success originates. I attended a private school growing up and I have several different friends sending their children to a variety of private, charter and other public schools in Allen County. After our discussions about their programming, parent interaction, teachers, etc., I always come to the conclusion that Highland Terrace is just as proactive and adaptive as these other schools, leaving me with the overall feeling that my children are in good hands.

I have been very pleased with Highland Terrace. My (dramatic and willful) daughter started out rather rocky even in kindergarten and first grade and needed a lot of work on behavior and discipline. Her first grade teacher is a stickler on good behavior (we are too), and was willing to communicate with

They involved their counselor to work with her and did basically whatever was necessary to create a discipline plan that put her choices and outcome in her control. Overall it was self motivating and positive. She enjoys the 'special art' time that she earns. I like the school overall.
