Highland Elementary School

     Tel: (718)357-4747
        
   
Grades: K - 8 | 137 students
The New Highland School facility includes well equipped attractive classrooms, library, science laboratory, art studio and full gymnasium.
The heart and soul of the school, though, is more than the bricks and mortar.
Differences between schools are rooted in the philosophy of education and the relationship between those who teach and those who come to learn.
The Highland tradition of private education is dynamic, sensitive to the needs of the individual student, and realistic enough to prepare for the educational career challenges that lie ahead.
At Highland individual growth requires both intellectual and physical development.
Supervised athletics and play programs are an integral part of the curriculum.
There is a full indoor gymnasium and a lovely park and ball field directly accross the street, all of which are used under faculty supervision for physical education classes and recreation periods.
