We are learners! Together we achieve!
The first bell rings at 7:55.
“Working together with a common goal of teaching students to become learners.”
Students in pre-kindergarten through 2nd grade attend Highland Elementary. It is our goal to work with students, teachers and parents to create an excitement for learning for a lifetime.
Students receive educational opportunities through classroom, small group and specialized instruction. All students have access to computer time daily. Participation in long distance programming allows students the opportunity to experience other cultures and programs that they might not otherwise have opportunity to experience.
Each student participates in daily enrichment through Physical Education and Fine Arts classes. A free breakfast is available for every student.
The core curriculum is TEKS driven through the use of the TEKS Resource System while using supporting materials form McMillan/ McGraw/ Hill reading series, GO Math, STEM Scopes Science and Harcourt Brace Social Studies. In addition, students are offered opportunities to accelerate their learning through tutorials and the use of computer programs. Technology enhances student learning through I-Station Learning, Renaissance Place, and various apps on our Ipads.
All visitors must sign in at the front office to receive a pass before entering the building. Opportunities for volunteers include reading with students, listening to students read, helping teachers with special projects, work on classroom decorations or lesson aids and copying or helping with paperwork.
Special programs are scheduled throughout the year. Be sure to check the district's events calendar.
