Highpoint Academy

Highpoint Academy is dedicated to providing excellence in education for each student.
Our teachers are committed to achieving this excellence by enhancing our children's natural interest in learning through exploration, motivation, manipulation and application.
In cooperation with our parents, these skills will provide the knowledge and experience students need to become responsible and caring family members who will be productive citizens in a multicultural and technological society of the 21st century.
At Highpoint, each child's individual interests are encouraged and rewarded.
Our teachers are expected to tailor their teaching to each student, not to a class average.
When a child succeeds, there is a personal recognition that reinforces that "winning" feeling.
Conscious of the characteristics pertaining to the origin, language and culture of the majority of our students, our bilingual faculty makes it easier for Hispanic children to assimilate into the American culture.
In addition, we cater to the Hispanic families by maintaining their many customs and cultural values.
Spanish is a required subject in the Elementary and Middle School grades.
We enable our students to become fully bilingual and to learn about their heritage through numerous activities and events.
At Highpoint, we also provide a challenging curriculum with flexibility to meet the needs of each student and an enriching program that encourages critical thinking, scientific exploration, physical fitness, hands-on learning and good citizenship.
Highpoint provides a safe family environment in which all our students can explore ideas and feelings.
We offer the guidance that ensures our children will not get lost in the process of this exploration.
We consider our school to be an extension of the family.
