Highland Catholic School has an atmosphere of caring and kindness. It’s genuine, not just a sentiment posted on a wall. The children are valued and treated with dignity. Mrs. Schmidt greets the kids by name at the front door and it’s a great way to welcome kids to a school day.
Sending our children off to school these days comes with new fears, but I feel reassured that my kids are safe in a community where everyone matters and is seen and included.

My children step into the building at Highland Catholic and seem to grow a head taller. The faculty and staff affirm them for who they are. As a result, they’re confident, happy, and poised to learn and grow every day. I can’t imagine a more nurturing school environment.
“Back to school” is my kids’ favorite time of year. There’s no place they’d rather be.
At Highland Catholic, my children have received great academic instruction and frequent opportunities to display leadership by speaking, reading or performing at various school forums. Highland Catholic sets expectations high for manners and respectful behavior which allows my children to show up their very best in the world. Finally, the degree of warmth and genuine support for the members of the school community is unparalleled. My children have a sense of belonging and community that will remain with them for their entire lives.

We moved our second grader, Wesley, to Highland Catholic in 2020, in the midst of the pandemic. From day one we knew we had made the right choice. We couldn’t be more pleased with the progress he has been making, especially given the unique circumstances we are all facing. The dedication and effort shown by the teachers and staff has been truly remarkable

We didn’t truly know what we were missing before moving our second grade daughter to Highland Catholic this past Fall, and we are so glad she is there now. Our family has found the school to be welcoming, the teachers and staff to be kind and supportive, and most importantly everything we observe is centered around a sincere care for the students and their development. We are thankful to see her thriving socially and academically, and we would recommend Hi-C to all families.

Although our three boys transferred to Highland Catholic in the upended year of 2020, they were greeted with warmth and kindness by teachers, staff, and students and transitioned seamlessly into the community. We have found that the curriculum is thoughtful and challenging, the teachers are supportive and clear communicators, and as this year has brought many opportunities for distance learning, the online and distance learning platform is consistent and predictable. Our family has enjoyed our experience at Highland Catholic and would recommend it to any family looking for a supportive school environment for their child.
