15 Parent Reviews for The Highlander Carden School

Several things should be cause for concern before considering this school. 1) No accreditation process. Teaching is inconsistent and there is no way to ensure any standards -- academic or otherwise. 2) They teach to the middle and cannot teach to children who are different, whether the child is advanced ...  Read more

My daughter began Highlander in kindergarten. She graduated from sixth grade at Highlander and has flown through middle school at another, more expensive private school. As she tests, evaluates and compares high schools, the skills she learned at Highlander guide her through all processes. As my son ...  Read more

Just ask for the ICEE scores of students here or any other measure of academic success before you enroll a child here. The cirriculum is "alternative" and this school is not accredited. This should serve as a warning flag to all parents. Think of a very, very expensive liberal arts education in college ...  Read more

Highlander is great school with outstanding teachers. The small classes give the students the attention they need to excel. My kids are both testing 5 grades above their actually grade level.

Administration/teacher very cold!! Would not recommend this pre-k program to anyone based on my child's experience. Highlander is not willing to work with "all" young children in this program, so just make sure you ask questions to find out if your child is a good fit for what they offer.

I think this is a great school. The reading program, the Carden Method, is excellent. It is a unique way of teaching phonics which begins in pre-school. I understand most of the students are reading at least on a grade level higher than average by the first grade. Same for the Saxon Math program, ...  Read more

It is an interesting way of teaching. Do not send your child to this school unless want to have a not well rounded child. Although nurturning, it is very structured and does not focus on the whole child. It is only for parents who take great pride in their children being above grade level but not ...  Read more

Highlander prepared me with a curriculam that was above average compared to local public schools and has set me up for my current success in high school.

We love this school and wouldn't consider going anywhere else. The teachers and staff know every child, and it is a caring, nurturing and safe environment. The curriculum can't be beat either. I am amazed at all the things my children have learned and know that they will go far because of the education ...  Read more
