Peace of mind is of the utmost importance
when choosing your childís educational needs. We, at the Highlands
School, are able to offer you that peace of mind through our quality
educational programs and wonderful teachers.
Schoolís curriculum is Creative Curriculum and Scholasticís Building
Language for Literacy Program. Our curriculum is theme based and focuses
on language and literacy awareness and development, allowing for each
child to progress at his or her own pace. Part of our goal for this
teaching method is to make certain proficiency is gained in each area of
development. Our curriculum
is not only fitted for group needs but is geared to accommodate each
childís individual needs. The educational experience that your child
will receive at Highlands School surpasses any other by giving your child
the building blocks to a successful life.
Highlands School requires a higher level of
commitment from all staff members. Our staffing process begins with a
rigid screening process that ensures only the highest qualified persons
are considered for any position which is available. The state requires
each teacher to receive 10 hours of approved training each year. Here at
Highlands School our teachers receive a minimum of 16 training hours per
year to greater enhance their skills in educating your child.
Additionally, each staff member is trained in First Aid and CPR. Further,
each staff member is provided with hands on supervision and support . This
not only enhances each staff members potential but also ensures your
childís guaranteed educational experience.
At Highlands School, we also maintain lower child to teacher ratios
than what is required by the state . This allows more one-on-one
interaction between the teachers and students as well as providing better
supervision for the children.
