Mission Statement

The  mission  of Highlands  Elementary  School  is  to
provide  a  safe  environment  for  the  study  of  a  challenging
and  balanced  curriculum  which  will  enable  students  to
become independent and critical thinkers. We expect that all
students   will   achieve   the   New   Jersey   Student
Learning Standards at all grade levels.  Opportunities will be
provided for students to develop self-esteem, social values,
and  the  motivation  needed  to  continue  individual  growth
while also developing a respect for cultural differences. This
mission  requires  an  active  and  responsible  partnership  of
students, staff, community, and school board
