Highcroft Elementary School has done a phenomenal job preparing my child for middle school. A great neighborhood school with a strong sense of community, the teachers build strong study habits in the children and a love for learning. Couldn't be more pleased.

I had to contact the school to fix a messup the school has made to my son. Both the front desk and the assistant principal were not helpful at all. Very disappointed. It seems the school has a serious issue with the management.

Our daughter went through Highcroft Drive Elementary and has been on a great trajectory ever since, with top honors through middle school and now also as ninth grade in high school. Our son is currently in 1st grade and we still feel both the school and community are excellent.

They do have an Academically gifted program for those supposedly at the top (but it was not a big deal), but they have nothing ...  Read more

We love this school. Having come from CT, we're finding that our kids are challenged here. This must be a good indication for this school system because we came from a very highly rated school back home. It's been 2 years and the kids are well adjusted and love their school. Mrs. Hughes is efficient ...  Read more

Our two children have attended Highcroft since they were in Kindergarten. One is now in 4th grade, the other is in 2nd. We have been extremely happy with our school. The teachers are kind and effective. The staff, including the principal, are friendly and helpful. No complaints here!

I'm not sure what bad reviews are about. Highcroft is a great school. I have one child in Highcroft now and one who attend from 1st - 5th grad very well prepared for middle school. As for the principle, how many do you know that would actually attend the 5th grade trip to Camp Don Lee and participate ...  Read more
