The Highland School, an independent Pre-Kindergarten-grade 8 school, stresses the appreciation of learning through the development of fundamental knowledge and skills in a nurturing and enriching setting. Small classes, warm and caring teachers, and a family-oriented atmosphere create a supportive environment from early morning through afterschool. Strong programs in a foreign language, physical education, art, music and drama complement the basic curriculum in all grades. The facility includes air-conditioned classrooms, a computer laboratory and a full gymnasium. Established in 1949, Highland Elementary is accredited by the New York State Department of Education. The academic preparation begins in Pre-Kindergarten, where youngsters engage in various learning and socialization activities. With individual attention, the children are encouraged and motivated to learn to reach their own levels of achievement. The program in the Middle School is an intensive, departmentalized, academic course of study, designed to prepare the students for the rigors of a specialized high school program. The graduates have been successful in gaining admission to the most prestigious public and private high schools in the city. A well-rounded program in a warm, nurturing environment provides the basis for success for all students.
