School Reviews

From the first time, we toured High Point we sensed it was a really special place. Now, four years into our daughter's education at HPA, we KNOW how special it is. It has been the perfect balance of strong academics, supportive and nurturing teachers, and well-rounded specialty classes -- including art, music, Spanish, library, and daily P.E. Our daughter has thrived at High Point and genuinely loves going to school each day.
