    Highpoint is the most wonderful school! The teachers are the most caring and lets not forget about Ms. Cunningham. I daughter Morgan who is now in the fourth grade loves her so much. She said that Ms.Cunningham eats lunch with them and comes to their class to see what we are working on. We can not wait to see the additions that have been built on over the summer. May God Bless everyone of you at this wonderful school! I am so greatful that my child is a student here.
