Highland is home to a unique special education program.  This program services students with Developmental Cognitive Disabilities (DCD).  Students’ needs are met in the small group special education setting and focuses on academic skills (literacy, mathematics), social skills and functional skills.  Appropriate inclusion opportunities are available in the general education classroom.  Our program focuses on the whole child.


We believe that all learners with or without disabilities will mutually benefit by having the opportunities to learn together by participating in educational experiences appropriate to meet their individual social and academic needs. We believe that all learners have value and dignity and deserve to be treated with respect, regardless of differences. We believe that students with disabilities can become contributing members when provided with the opportunities to learn, socialize and function in a variety of environments.
