    Highland Middle school is great this year. Parents receive emails on upcoming events. Teachers address parents concerns and most importantly they make every student feel appreciated. Thanks to all of you teachers for your outstanding work and dedication to our children. I

    I like this school but I wish there were clubs to join such as a designing club or an art club for 7th graders
