    This school is average maby above average academically... It lacks black students as well as black staff/ teachers.( But hey... Thats everywhere in San Antonio) Being 1 of 3 Black Fathers I saw every morning I felt very disrespected dropping off my children from this school.. Out of all the hispanic parents walking the halls taking their kids to their classrooms with out sign in name tags on. The same Hispanic principle felt the need to badger me about not having one every morning. Leaving him speechless each time he questioned me because I pointed out that countless hispanics passed him with out name tags and he greeted them with good mornings. He stopped messing wit me after he knew i wasn't gone get a name tag and my attitude only got worse each time he question me. Another thing if anyone wanted to drop off class snacks ect.. during school they don't let you go to your childs class regaurdless of the verification you show. You can before the morning bell with a name tag but not at all during school... messed up rules... they act like they don't want you to catch them slipping around your kids.

    Teachers are very interested in the student suceeding in life and to make sure they make the right decisions. Thank you for the following teachers there at Highlands hills elem. Mrs. Lara 4th grade Mrs. Bergh 3rd grade Mrs. Rodriguez 1st grade Ms. Justice 3rd grade and last but not least Mr. Gonzales 1st grade with all of their advise and guidance they have made my daughter's life. She has had some of the wonder teacher in the past and some she has met in the hallway or in challenge. We need more teacher's like these the really and truly care about our kids education. Thank you for doing a job well done.

    I just moved here from Louisiana and I am very happy with this school. My son has a hearing problem and learning disability too and they are helping alot more than he got help in La. He just started with the help and can't wait to see how his grades increase.
