Open Quote I would not recommend any child to attend Highland Middle School. My son is an eighth grader and I could not more glad that this is his last year. The team of teachers he assigned to does not promote positivity and none of them should have chosen teaching as a career.********DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO HIGHLAND MIDDLE SCHOOL******** Close Quote

Open Quote My kids have learned a lot and it seems that the teachers make it a fun place to learn. Learning field trips are exceptional and at no other school in Jefferson County, do I know where the kids get the same experience. As a parent, I am VERY PLEASED with Highland Middle School and their learning process. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
