  • Highland Free School provides a unique learning environment for parents and students looking for an alternative to public schools.
  • Our non-profit school was founded upon educational principles that were, at the time, fresh and innovative.
  • Concepts such as the “open classroom,” where students no longer had to sit in straight rows of desks, and “student-based curriculum” that eliminated standard textbooks in favor of educational programs based on a student’s individual readiness and interests.
  • We involved students and thier parents and tried to build a school community that would integrate the child’s school life and family life.
  • The educational philosophy at Highland Free School is based upon the fact that children are naturally inquisitive and excited by learning.
  • Our goal is to keep that inquisitiveness alive.
  • We do so by providing an environment in which students are free to explore, discover and learn at their own pace, supported by genuine interest and respect of their peers and teachers.
