The Highlands School is a small nonprofit, but they are very generous dispersing their financial aid to families who need it. Their financial aid comes from many generous donors in the community which makes it possible for children from all socio-economic levels to attend.

I am a reading specialist and I have a private tutoring practice. Over the years, I have referred families of struggling readers to The Highlands Schhol. Their philosophy is to teach students the skills and stategies they need to become successful, independent learners so they can transition back to a traditional setting, usually within two to three years. The students improve their reading and other academic, study and social skills. I can see a difference in their self-esteem in a relatively short period of time. Learning becomes fun for them! After students leave The Highlands School and return to a school with traditional teaching methods, these young people continue to learn and graduate from high school and college.

I have encouraged families to enroll their children at The Highlands School. Children who do not learn and grow in a traditional school setting need a chance to be taught differently, according to their unique style of learning. I have seen young people change from beaten-down, depressed individuals to happy students, confident in themselves as learners in a matter of just a few weeks!

I would like to get the word out to families that there are ways to afford The Highlands School if a child needs the services that they provide. The Highlands School works hard with families to ensure that if their child needs to be at the school, they will help find a way for them to afford the tuition through financial aid and other alternatives.

I have been teaching at The Highlands School for over 10 years. At the beginning of the school year, we see down trodden students walking our halls. After just a few weeks of teaching them with our methods, we see them walking taller and with smiles on their faces. They realize that they can learn when they are taught by the proper methods they need to succeed. Then when they are tested and see that their grade level has improved, they are overjoyed, and so are we.

I am an employee of The Highlands School. When I originally came to this school, I was totally uneducated and unaware of the tremendous need for students with learning differences. Year in and year out, I continue to be amazed at the accomplishments our students make. It is a thrill to see their self-confidence and self-esteem grow and flourish as they strive to meet each goal set before them. Our faculty and staff are by far, the most devoted educators I've ever encountered and it has been a honor to be part of this remarkable organization.

I have worked here at The Highlands School for the past 8 years and have seen so many children served in such a positive way. Not only do the students gain the academic skills they need, they also grow in self-confidence. They feel successful here. The learning environment is warm and supportive both for the students and for the staff. It's a pleasure to work here.
