    Highland is an exceptional school. My daughter is in 4th grade. She has attended since preschool. The faculty and staff are very loving and caring. They truly show that they care about their students. They go above and beyond to help these students learn. The principle is awesome. She came to our school approximate 3 years ago. The population of Highland is around 550-600. When you walk into the doors of Highland Elementary you can feel the warm welcome by the staff. The student's are always greeted with a smile. It's like one big happy family. Thank you for considering Highland for your contest.
