Why Highlands Elementary School? New Families

Highlands Elementary School serves more than 700 children in kindergarten through 6th grade. Highlands will celebrate 50 years of teaching and learning in 2017. We commonly hear repeat comments from parents about our strong, caring staff and that Highlands is a big school with a small school feeling.

Diversity

It is a diverse community serving the needs of many different learners. Highlands embraces the diverse population and utilizes that to teach community and acceptance!

Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition (formerly New Wisconsin Promise School of Recognition)
Since 2003, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has recognized Title I schools that have demonstrated success in educating students. To be eligible, schools must receive federal Title I funding to provide services to large numbers or high percentages of economically disadvantaged children and meet other achievement criteria. 

These awards recognize the work of students and their parents along with teachers, school administrators, and school staff members to break the link between poverty and low academic achievement. Their efforts help us ensure that every student graduates college and career ready.
