Highland Park embraces the mission of reaching and teaching all learners. We currently serve approximately 400 students from preschool through sixth grade and strive to meet all students’ needs in meaningful and impactful ways. Our teaching teams meet regularly to review student outcomes, identifying opportunities for both remediation and enrichment. Highland Park uses Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and is a Well-Managed School (WMS). PBIS is a structure that explicitly teaches and reinforces desired behaviors in common areas. Being a Well-Managed School means we embrace the whole child and approach behavioral needs just as we would academic needs. The Panda Pride Nature Preserve is a unique campus offering of which we are very proud! Through community partnerships and a lot of teamwork, the Panda Pride Nature Preserve now includes walking trails, two outdoor classrooms, a wetland viewing area, bird boxes, and native planting gardens installed by our students!
