Principal's Message

Welcome to Highlands School! 

Over the course of the last century Highlands School has been serving the students and families of the greater Highlands community as a junior high school and, for the past 10 years, as an Arts Core School.  Further, we are entering our third year of serving local students from Kindergarten to grade nine.

Highlands School proudly offers rich programming, incorporating visual and performing arts into everyday learning. Here, students may explore their creative and expressive nature through visual art, music, dance and drama—integral to receptive and expressive learning across all curricular areas and fundamental to optimal learning and well-being. Learning through the arts complements academic rigour while accommodating individual differences and promoting overall student success. As well, at Highlands School students are provided leadership opportunities to nurture growth, confidence, and resilience—all ingredients contributing to their ultimate success.

Highlands School prioritises building strong and meaningful relationships with students, families, and community to ensure a caring and creative learning environment for every child. We are committed to providing  everyone with opportunities to develop their social, emotional and intellectual potential.  

At Highlands School, our families, community and partners are strong and committed, creating special opportunities to enrich the educational experiences for all students. I look forward to sharing an exciting year full of positive relationships, rich learning experiences and fun with students, staff and community.
