Thank you for visiting the Highland Elementary School website! Highland Elementary School, in Cheshire, Connecticut, is a dynamic and exciting place to work or to go to school. Over 140 staff members and approximately 840 students, in grades K-6, share learning experiences and extracurricular activities that encourage cooperation, communication, and collaboration. Our talented and dedicated teachers and support staff work with the parents and community to provide a positive, safe, nurturing, and fun environment that contributes to student success. We strive to create a community based on mutual respect in which all students become responsible citizens and complex thinkers. We offer students a strong academic program that encompasses kindergarten through sixth grade. In addition, we have professional educators who teach and enhance learning in general music, instrumental music (grades five and six only), physical education, art, and library skills. We also have highly trained literacy coaches and parent volunteers. The Highland School Parent Teacher Organization provides many wonderful events for our student over the course of the year. Parents and guardians are encouraged to join this organization and attend PTO meetings. So, enjoy our website, and contact us if you have any questions.
