Parent Quality Service Survey
Each year Mesa Public Schools sends home with every child a Parent Quality Service Survey. Highland will be sending home a parent survey with each student during Parent/Teacher Conference week, January 12-16. Our purpose is to gain your feedback on how we are doing. We look forward to receiving a survey back from each child on your behalf. If you would like to drop off the survey personally, you may bring it to our office and put it in our drop box. At Highland, we are here to service you and your children. We look forward to your input in helping us to better serve all children in the future. All surveys will be due back on February 13th.
Aesthetic Education Perspective
Highland staff is re-emphasizing an aesthetic education approach to complement our STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). This allows us to round out our program and create a STEAM environment (A being Arts).
Following our Lincoln Center Education Training in July of 2014 and 2015, teachers have developed and implemented arts integration lessons tied directly to English Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, and Science Standards.
Highland Teachers had already been trained in Engineering in the Elementary Schools, making our school unique in the district for approaching both engineering and arts education in a blended environment.
Wizard of Oz Play
Our fifth and sixth graders did an awesome job on the fall 2015 play. See Highland Images for many more play pictures.
