My children have attended Highlands for 4 years now. We are thrilled with the quality of the education, as well as the family feel of the school. Their campus is impressive with so much to offer! We are looking forward to our children continuing all the way though graduation! I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a high quality education for their child with a focus centered on Jesus Christ.
