Open Quote My daughter completed 1-6 at Highland Park. My son is in 4th. Both kids are very well prepared, do well on MCAs and are very much "school ready". My daughter is doing well in Middle School and is well ahead of many other kids. The school has a good balance of diversity as well, allowing my kids to be comfortable anywhere. Finally, the relationship between teachers, administrators and parents is trusting. Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter went to Highland Park Elementary from 1st to 5th grade. They never tought her about the presidents or what the state and capitals were. They went over cursive writing for two weeks, but never enforced writing in cursive after that so she doesn't know how now. Now that she is in middle school she feels like she is behind and not prepared. 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.
