Open Quote My children attend Highland Elementary School, and I feel they are in an organized and safe school. The teachers set high expectations for the students because they are committed to delivering a quality education. My fourth grader’s teacher is constantly setting goals for the students, testing, teaching and sharing the results with my child and I. We review the results together and come up with creative and nurturing methods to extend and improve my child’s learning. I am pleased with the education that my children are receiving at Highland Elementary School. 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.
