    My son has been there since Pre-K and we have seen him grow academically and socially. I agree with the comment from the parent with 3 kids because the school is small the staff is more flexible in their delivery of instruction. They are able to integrate so much into their curriculum. We love Highland Mill!

    We have 3 children at the school. We love being in a small school only 300 kids with such great teachers and staff. Because the school is small and it is Montessori the children have a flexibility in their learning approach. The teachers can accomodate and structure the teaching to meet the child's learning style. We have a child with ADHD and he has been so successful in this environment. It is amazing what the children are learning! We have a new principal this year and she has added a lot of structure to the school. She is so efficient and organized. We appreciate that from her.
