School Reviews

Our child had been at Highland Hall since she was in the Parent and Child class with the warm and wonderful Mrs. Shahbazzi. Now in second grade, our daughter is flourishing. The school presents academics in an age-appropriate way, so that the children love school. Arts and music are integrated into the curriculum, supporting critical thinking later on. And, she's learning two languages. She loves the teachers, is relaxed and joyful...and learning. We love the school.
