    The entire staff are very happy to help with the students after school work by guiding them in off hours of class study. The teachers are open to extra credit for students when needed because of family troubles. The entire school involvement with their students in completely learning motivated.

    All 4 of my children attended North Highlands. They have a very friendly staff and the speech teachers are awesome! The office staff are informative and friendly. My oldest daughter just graduated from high school and is going to Louisiana Tech to major in bio-medical engineering. I think North Highlands had a lot to do with her success!

    The faculty is very dedicated but the class rooms are cramped over crowded and the curriculm is too compressed. I feel like the only time my child advace educationally was when we reveiwed his assingments at home.

    I have had two boys go through North Highlands Elementary. They received an excellent baseline on which the rest of their education has been based on. They are both now in college one majoring in Chemistry/Pre Med and the other one in Chemical Engineering.
