My son was lost untile he attended The Highlands School. He was not processing properly and was continually bullied at school because the other children perceived him as "stupid". His self-esteem took such a beating we were concerned he would never go back to school again. What The Highlands School has done for our son has been beyond amazing. They have taken a shattered little boy and within weeks of entering the school, turned him into a new child. He values school, what he learns and beams with a new found self esteem. They teach these children to value themselves for their differences. They have successfully come up with a program that does not leave any child behind......every single child at this school is valued and succeeds academically...not matter what their individual pace. This school not only transformed our son, but has transformed our family as well. I only wish I had sent him here years ago.

My sons experience at this school has changed our family. We had a son that struggled with frustration, self-esteem issues and behavioral issues because of the way he was treated at his last school. He is thriving at The Highlands School. Which has had such an amazing impact on him and changed our household from anxious to this amazing, happy atmosphere.
