Highland is an AVID Elementary School!
Being an AVID Elementary school means the following for Highland Elementary School students:
The activities in the FOSS program are matched to the way students think at different times in their lives. Upper elementary students construct more advanced concepts by classifying, testing, experimenting, and determining cause and effect relationships among objects, organisms, and systems.
Teachers plan and implement FOSS investigations that provide hands on science instruction which support Highland students as they inquire about the world that we live in through the eyes of a scientist.
