About Our School

Philosophy


The Highlands staff believes a co-operative, open environment fosters the best possible academic, personal and social development for each pupil.  Every child is encouraged to become an independent, self-motivated student with a positive attitude towards learning, a sense of responsibility and empathy for others.

 

Our school policies and procedures reflect principles of child development, current educational practices and research, and a concern for the needs of the individual child.  Our programs assist students in acquiring the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to be successful in society.


We recognise that education is a partnership between home and school, and we encourage parents to become involved through the Highlands Parent Advisory Council (HPAC).
