Principal's Message

Welcome to Highland Elementary School!  

Dear Highland Families:

Welcome to Highland Elementary School. I am so proud to be the principal of this wonderful learning community! The building is filled with master teachers and people who truly care about kids and their growth.

At Highland, we believe in providing a well-rounded education in a nurturing setting that allows our students to reach their highest potential. The majority of our teachers have their Masters’ Degrees and most have been here at Highland for ten years or more! Our teachers create an academic environment where children are engaged, active learners. They use their wealth of experience, the latest techniques and tools in technology, and researched-based practices to foster a love of learning. It is an honor to be working with a staff committed to excellence.

Our focus is to meet the educational needs of all learners. We believe that all students can learn, achieve academically, and behave responsibly. By working collaboratively and setting high expectations and standards for all, we are able to provide our students with the best that we have to offer. To accomplish this, we are willing to examine and adjust our practices to have a positive impact on student learning.

We will continue to work in our Professional Learning Communities to address our four critical questions:

  • What do we expect students to know?
  • How will we know when they have learned it?
  • What are we going to do if they have not learned it?
  • What will we do if they already know it?

At Highland, we know that educating children requires a strong commitment to working as a team. We value and encourage parent involvement, collaboration, and communication around student needs. Highland is a warm, safe, and nurturing place for all who walk through our doors. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions or concerns.

I am excited to get the school year started. Highland Elementary is truly a great place to be! 

Live and learn,

Keri McCabe
