Wasted 6 months of potential learning. My son had to attend this School when we moved here from GA. in the middle of the school year. It’s sad to see how far behind this School is on what the kids are learning. So happy to be moving on

Terrible school.. Teachers have zero interest in helping disadvantaged children succeed. The Unstoppables team is incapable of dealing with ADHD kids. My child averages 1-2 subs a day.. Teachers do not care about children.

I regret encouraging my child to attend Highland. This used to be a good school but now has a tremendous disipline problem. My once happy and outgoing child who always loved school is now miserable, depressed and has extreme anxiety issues. She doesn't even feel safe at school because of the kids she has to deal with daily. In the two years that my child has been at Highland, I've only ran across one or two teachers that seem to care about their students.

Im currently homeschooled, but I went to Highland for 2.5 years and I could not be happier to get out. Here are the pros and the cons of this school.Pros:-the chorus teacher is the BEST chorus teacher ever. She's sweet, funny, amazing, and does an amazing job at teaching the students. Im still taking lessons with her privately!-There are two world languages you can take: Spanish and French.-You can take 2D art or 3D art-Lots of after school activities-The counselors are super niceCons:-Most of the teachers cannot teach whatsoever. -Too many problematic kids-Bomb threats are almost monthly-The principle sucks at his job-The core content teachers suck at actually making you feel smart-I barely paid any attention in most of my classes and I got A's and B's-The French teacher sucks at her job. I once wrote down the lyrics to "never gonna give you up" by rick astley on apaper and I got an A.-It's not super easy to make friends-LOTS OF FIGHTS OH MY GOSH -There are three types of teachers. The super strict teachers that actually like their students and want them to succeed (Ms. Torres is a Spanish teacher there and she is a prime example of that kind of teacher) The teacher that just gives lectures and doesn't even care if the students aren't listening, and the teacher who is super fun but doesn't teach much due to them cracking so many jokes.-Don't go here.

My advanced placement child regrets choosing this school. She is sometimes put into classes with kids who do not care to learn. When asked for a transfer, the answer was no. If you look at these reviews the best reviews were years ago. Looks like this school is not longer what it used to be.
