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 meet the needs of a select few at the expense of 99% of the student population. 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. You children will not be sheltered from diversity of economics or race, while receiving a quality education at a personal level.
