Segregated white high school in a little city separated from the surrounding community by a bubble. Today the school suspended seven books already being read in classes because parents complained the books addressed adult issues. One writer's visit was canceled. The books included The Working Poor; Invisible ...  Read more

Great extracurricular activities, and fantastic teachers. One of the best schools (private or public) you can possibly enroll your child in.

One of the best in the nation! It doesn't get any better in public education, and beats many private schools as well.

Fantastic school as long as you have attended the elementary and middle schools that feed students into this school. Most other public schools will not have prepared your children for the demands that the school places on the students.

I just moved from Colorado to Highland Park, and the students there were so kind and nice to me, it wasn't hard to make friends at all. And the teachers are very supportive and most of the time they are reasonable. HP is a great school and a wonderful learning enviornment. Go SCOTS!

Extreme parental involvement makes for a highly competitive atmosphere. Most students rank very high in academic achievement and are pushed to take honors classes. Very good educational opportunities as well as a great sports program.
