Highland park is very misunderstood. The kids in the school are not as bad as people say we are. Everyone unites as one. There is not as much bullying as i thought it might be, when i was a freshman. I love my Scots. Mr.Cushinberry is a great influence on any kid. He is fun and nice, but also know's ...  Read more

I attended Highland Park and it taught me about being myself in a diverse environment. Highland Park is the most diverse school in Topeka.

I think Highland Park is a wonderful school. If you are willing to learn the teachers are wonderful to work with your student and help them learn.They really care about there students and are there for them. I would not have my student go any where else but here because of the wonderful staff.

Highland Park High School is by far one of the worst schools in Topeka. While there have been some reforms this year by Dale Cushinberry to decrease tardies and abscences, Highland Park is still slumping well below any standard that it must be at. Comparatively in academics, it hardly compares to ...  Read more

I go to highland park and I think it is one of the best schools there are in topeka. There isn't really that many fights that people like to think there are. It's more arguing than actual fist fighting. People think it's a bad school just because it is really diverse, but they are WRONG!It is one of ...  Read more

I think the teachers in the Highlander Success Academy are some of the best there are. The teachers in the Academy work hard to ensure student success despite working with a large population of students on free/reduced lunch, ESL students and special education students. The teachers who work in the ...  Read more
