Highland Elementary School Mission and Vision

Open Door


Parents, community and staff working together to develop lifelong learners and contributing members of our society.

We envision a school in which staff:
Demonstrate accountability for each student through on-going assessment; 
Regularly collaborate within and between teams;
Address the needs of the whole child, including academic, social and emotional development;
Research and implement “best practices”;
All work together toward common goals; and
Welcome and utilize parent/community involvement.
Collective Commitments
In order to attain the vision we have for our school, the following collective commitments were established by Highland Elementary staff:
Develop and implement common assessments that are aligned with district frameworks;
Utilize the Student Profile to analyze all testing data;
Apply time and structure for creative teaming for all staff;
Examine and utilize building, district and community resources to support the whole child;
Participate in job-embedded opportunities for on-going collaboration and professional development;
Enhance professional skills through acquired knowledge and staff development;
Develop agreed-upon goals directly related to student achievement; and
Evaluate building needs to broaden opportunities for community involvement at Highland.
