The mission of Highlands Borough School District is to provide a safe environment for the study of a challenging and balanced curriculum which, will enable students to become independent and critical thinkers. We expect that all students will achieve the New Jersey Student Learning Standards at all grade levels. Opportunities will be provided for students to develop self-esteem, social values, and the motivation needed to continue individual growth while also developing a respect for cultural differences. This mission requires an active and responsible partnership of students, staff, community, and school board.
