Community Rating & Reviews

    The school staff definitely prioritizes the well being of each student and they are passionate about what they do. Communication could be better between all staff members and also with the parents. New principal this year so hopefully that will be changed. There is lack of staff support and materials to teach ALL the children and to help those understanding material to move forward; as majority have IEP's 504's or other behavioral/emotional/social issues. The teachers do their best though with what they have to work with. Not thrilled with the music dept. though at all.

    This school has an exceptional staff but teachers are overwhelmed. The classroom is not a very good learning environment because too many students are on Individual Education Plans or Individual Development Plans. Even with Para Profesionals to help some teachers are unable to or are struggling to challenge those students who are at a higher academic level and have no learning disabilities.

    A great learning environment for all.

    This school is not only operated by an exceptionably talented staff but also has a firm commitment from the parents and community to make sure our kids excel in academic sports music etc. Supported by summer programs such as Highgate Cares. We love our kids and we will love yours. We are a small community but we have big hearts.
