    To the individual who posted the negative review in regards to Mr. Langdon I would like to say out of all the principles before him the students never seemed to have such a personal interaction as they do now with Mr. Langdon. The reason for the loss of teachers and faculty were because of those individuals personal reasons not because of his decision or judgement call. Last of all to those who do not reside in the Highline district if you are unpleased or dissatisfied then you should seek to your corresponding school district or school. Don't blame Mr. Landgon on the low test scores blame the parents who don't work with their children at home.

    Mr. Langdon is bringing this school down check out the drop in test scores. He does not have the ability to run a school. He has lost so many good teachers and faculty from last year it makes a person wonder. If the people he's hired are a reflection of his judgement - Highline does not stand a chance. There is no longer a feeling of being welcomed when you come in the front door and there is little to no expections for kids to learn.

    we were homeless anbd they gave us so much of a hard time to enroll my son in that school and when they finally were forced to we were getting ready to move again so again they rejected him I guess this school in only for people that they want to help but don't go there if you are in a bad situation they will make it worse

    I've been around this school for almost a year now and it has really taken off. Mr. Langdon the principal shows that he really cares for the success of our students by "getting out of his office" and walking around showing positive support to the kids and staff. Way to go Highline!

    My son is at Highline elementary and I could not be happier about the education he is receiving. It is an excellent school with excellent faculty and I am proud my child attends here.

    this is a wonderful school. My girls went here and when it was time to look for a house to purchase we told our realtor that we only wanted to look in the Highline area! I now have 3 boys in the school. I am proud that all 5 of my children are Highline kids!

    Amazing place for kids. All kids. English classes for adults. Great parents working with teachers. Very high academic expectations. It is a real school for real kids. The teachers are the best. We love Ms. Henderson and Ms Bialey and Ms. Odea and Ms Frohardt. Thank you.

    If you want a school where your child is valued only for their test score and a principal who has no idea who your child is this school is for you.

  • (5 years ago)

    I have 3 kids who have attended more then 5 schools total. This school is the best we have ever gone to. The teachers are just great. The principal Miss Peoples knows what each kid needs and she loves every child. We believe this school is how all schools in USA should be run. You can also look at their test scores and see how good they are for a school that has a ton of kids who don't speak English. Thank You Highline

    I love this school! It took me a while to loosen up and get comfortable with this school but after that I realized what a great school it is! There are no cliques everybody just hangs out with everybody! The teachers are great they let us learn in a very fun way and they teach us our responsiblity for Middle School and life. This is one of the best schools out there in Colorado!

    The best school in the state of Colorado. The principal Ms. Peoples is focused on helping all kids learn. The staff is all about the kids. Their CSAP scores may not be the highest in the state but remember they have tons of Spanish speaking kids. Their scores are darn good when we remember half of the kids taking the CSAP don't speak English. I love this school.

    I'am really gratefull with the staff and the principle with the excellent education that they have provided my children with. Sincerelly I recommend this school for having an excellent moral education and for personally getting involved with the students development. This is the kind of school that provides our children with the variety of programs too help our children get involved and stay focused.

    Great School with great funding. 28/1 student/teacher ratio however they compensate this with having a fabulous abundance of support staff. The principal and assistant principal care about the school and offer many school programs. Music art and PE included. Very bilingual but again has the support necessary to deal with whatever handicaps may arise.
