Open Quote I have two children currently at Highland and my oldest attended several years ago. I am extremely happy with this school, overall. I have found the teachers to be exceptional. My children are very comfortable there and have not had any complaints about a single teacher. The majority of teachers have been very responsive to parents and students, and the previous principal was fantastic. We love the diversity of the school as well. 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.
