The school offers a balanced, comprehensive education that weaves together academic achievement with hands-on experience in an artistic environment.
Each year's curriculum is designed to engage the children as they move through the three school-age developmental phases: in kindergarten, through imitation and guided creative play; in grade school, through the imaginative and artistic presentations of the class teacher; and in high school, through subject teachers who challenge the students' awakening capacity for independent thinking.

School Reviews

1 year ago
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.
