How We Support
The Highland Foundation for Educational Excellence provides direct support for student development, encourages staff excellence and creativity, promotes the school district as a center for community learning, and helps build a strong school partnership. The Foundation underwrites a diverse mix of educational programs and experiences each year and focuses on six core areas of need. These platforms help students advance on many levels, both in and out of the classroom. At the same time, these areas closely align to the interests of our generous donors.
Core Areas of Impact
Popular reading programs and writing exercises encourage Highland students in many grade levels to grow their literacy skills.

This area of focus provides learning experiences that help students make positive life choices and develop a community of inclusion.
Our generous donors are helping to develop tomorrow’s science, technology, engineering and mathematics leaders.
We strongly believe in expanding the educational boundaries to include a worldly approach to learning, which coincides with the district’s mission.
Inclusive education creates an environment where every student has the opportunity to thrive.
