Highland Elementary School

Tel: (718)357-4747
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.

School Reviews

  • Recommended October 24, 2013 - After being in many other school settings, I can say that Highland is a great fit for our family. Our kids are happy and making friends, they are learning and growing academically, while also enjoying gym, music, art, etc. The teachers and administrators are very experienced and professional. And it is much less expensive than other private schools our kids have attended. I would very highly recommend Highland. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended April 12, 2013 - My child''s previous religious school closed without any advanced notice and we were forced to search for an immediate placement. After looking at several other schools, we chose Highland and we couldn''t be more pleased. The staff is welcoming, as are the children. My child was immediately accepted and felt part of the experience. The school offers many academic opportunities and also many great activities. It is a well rounded program, one where my child is happy to learn and grow. Though the school is non sectarian, and doesn''t offer any religious education, I feel my daughter is gaining knowledge in so many other areas. I can always supplement the academics with outside religious activities. Highland was a great choice for me. I only wish we found the school earlier in my daughter''s educational journey. - Posted by Parent
