All students deserve to be taught in a way that respects their differences, that challenges their thought process, that stimulates creativity, imagination and outside the box thinking.
Students learn in different ways and thus we must provide them with a variety of instructional approaches focusing on their individual learning styles.
Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs.
The teachings of character education and core traits are essential in helping our students grow up to be respectful, responsible, honest and ethical adults of tomorrow.
Through consistency in discipline, love and encouragement, and a solid academic curriculum with small classes and individualized attention, we can achieve success.
The self-esteem of our students can be enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect between students and faculty.
In order for our students to succeed, we must provide them with a safe, nurturing and orderly environment.
Itis important for our students to learn how to speak, read and write in both Spanish and English correctly.
Teachers, Administrators and Parents share the responsibility of advancing and enforcing our school's objectives.
Every teacher is expected to teach students with compassion, patience and dedication.
Our goal is for our students to appreciate their uniqueness, to prosper socially, to learn how to think and respond for themselves, to be leaders, to learn the meaning of responsibility, to respect the rights of others, to know the difference between right and wrong in an intuitive manner, and to develop to their fullest potential. We promote positive reinforcement, constant communication between teachers and parents, and a structured learning environment in order to achieve our goals.
At Highpoint, each child's individual learning styles and character strengths are encouraged and rewarded. Our teachers are expected to tailor their teaching to each student, not to a class average. When a child needs help, it is always available, very often on a one-on-one. When a child succeeds, there's a personal recognition that reinforces that "winning" feeling. We provide a safe environment where all students can explore ideas and feelings. We offer the guidance that ensures that children will not get lost in the process of this exploration. We're proud to consider ourselves an extension of each Highpoint Family. Many elements contribute to the successful and creative learning occurring on our campus. Inspirational educators, optimal classroom facilities, appropriate and impactful uses of technology, innovative practices acquired through faculty professional development, and ample outdoor learning spaces are key aspects in which we must continue to invest. Our faculty members guide and educate our students with individualized and inspiring curricula from Pre-K through 8th grade. Our alumni excel in High School and hundreds of them have grown to be talented leaders in an extraordinarily wide range of fields who contribute actively to society. We’re extremely proud to witness these successes and to know that for over 45 years Highpoint Academy has played a unique, significant, and important role in our community.
