Message from the Principal
Welcome to Highlands Middle School 2023 - 2024
Who can believe that we are already at the end of Trimester 1?! How quickly this school year is going by?! I cannot say enough how proud I am of the great work that our students and staff are doing here in the middle school.
Congratulations to this amazing team; as the middle school has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report, Niche, and UChicago Impact as one of the top middle schools in the state of Illinois! Not only have the students demonstrated double-digit achievement above the state average, but also our teachers/staff have received an "A+" rating, and we have been denoted as being "Well-Organized for Improvement". Truly amazing! There are SO many great things happening here and I very excited to be a part of it!
Thank you to all stakeholders for supporting the ongoing growth and changes happening at Highlands Middle School. Thank you to the School Board, Administration, staff, PTC, Ed. Foundation, parents/guardians, and students for ensuring that Highlands is a wonderful place to live, learn, work and grow.
Highlands is truly a special place and we are looking forward to the many great things to come.
Ms. Megan VerVynck, Principal
