    This is my first year in this county. My son has done excellent at Highland Renaissance Academy. Mrs. Webber and Mrs. Price worked real hard and well with my son. I am so blessed to have had them for my son's beginning. Ms. Hayes Ms. Lowe and including the speech therapist. They have all helped me as a single parent. They are right where they are suppose to be. Keep up the good work!

    I must say since my children starting attending Highland they have come up a long way. I have 2 children with learning disabilities and 1 with ADHD. Where I have been round and round with other schools they addressed the issues and found ways to offer services to help my children succeed. I would recommend that any parent struggling with learning concerns this is the school for you. Dr. Bovis and her staff have been a life saver to me and my family.
