Open Quote I have had children in Highland for the past four years and have been nothing but impressed. The teachers are smart, enthusiastic, and truly care about the students. The PTO is very active and there are tons of fun events to participate in. It's been very easy to get involved and I've found the entire community to be very welcoming. This is our first experience with Abington public schools and so far it has been a wonderful experience. Our kids have loved their teachers at Highland and I just hope their love of learning continues into higher grades. 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.
