Welcome to Highlands 5/6, a middle school in Northview Public Schools. The Highlands learning community is a place where Students Flourish Academically, Emotionally and Socially. We recognize that during the middle years of school, students have unique developmental needs for independence, mastery, and belonging. Highlands offers an abundance of educational opportunities for students in 5th and 6th grades.
In order to fulfill our vision of helping students flourish, Highlands utilizes a unique interdisciplinary team model along with programs and activities that encourage students to discover their full potential. An academic day involves a busy schedule that challenges students in the four core areas of reading, math, science, and social studies. Students participate in encore and music classes that enhance their schedule and provide a comprehensive whole child centered education.
Along with the academics, students are offered the middle school philosophy of independence and belonging. Throughout their school day, students learn important life skills of cooperation, problem-solving, grit, and generosity. The Highlands staff is committed to educating the students in a professional, caring, and fun-loving manner while using parents/guardians as partners. It is our goal to guide the students in their transition from elementary to secondary by challenging, inspiring, and engaging them in the school experience.
If you are interested in more information about our school or have questions, please feel free to visit our school or contact us by email or phone.
