Highland Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

March 25, 2014 Submitted by a parent
We have been through the ridiculous, stressful, expensive, bizarre experience of trying to find a reasonable school in New York too many times, and I am so relieved and happy that we finally found Highland. The student body is very diverse and the kids are happy and welcoming. The teachers are professional and caring. The administration is involved, experienced, and available. Academically, my kids have progressed about two grade levels each but are not put under pressure. Highland takes its academics seriously, while providing gym every day, very high-quality music education, art, and science. Plus, they find the time for fun activities and field trips. Kids only get one childhood, and Highland attends to their whole development and their happiness in a way I've not seen at any other school.

If you are looking for a school that provides structure, professionalism, a nuturing environment, and continuity. Skip this one. The principal and staff members needs to learn customer service and become open minded about ideas for the children in order for the school to be successful.

No one should take exception to what is written here. The exchange of honest ideas and opinions is healthy. The Highland School has many good features but there are areas where improvement is greatly needed. This year in particular many parents are dissatisfied and although they have brought up their concerns to the administration little has been done. There is a reluctance to deal with difficult issues such as the incompetency of a staff member. It is a perceived as an attack on the school and its supervision. The time has come to sit down and address the issues that most concern our children. The PTA meetings should also provide parents with a forum to raise issues of concern. I attribute the low attendance at the PTA meetings not as an indication of 100% Satisfaction but rather 'What's the use?'

I take exception with the horribly inacurate review given on Oct. 8. My daughter has been in the school since kindergarten and I have found that the administration (which has not changed in over 10 years) is extremely responsive to my concerns and any problems I may have. It is a small school where everyone knows everyone else. The children are very happy - the classroom size is small (about 18 kids per class) and the kids seem to foster lasting relationships (with the other kids and the teachers). But as a small school it does have limited resources and may not be right for a kid that has health or behavioural problems.

My son started in K now in 1st grade. Wonderful school, small close nit environment. What impressed me the most was the principal's ability to remember each and every child's name!
