Since our inception in 1968, Highland has been a place that levels the playing field to make sure that all our families have access to a well-round educational experience. At Highland, our motto has always been “All of us or none of us!”
We strive to ensure that every opportunity that we offer is available and accessible to all students. This means stretching our dollars through developing partnerships and leveraging volunteers. It also requires raising additional funds above and beyond our state funding.
That’s where the Highland Annual Fund comes in. For the 2019-2020 school year, the gap is $317 per student. The Annual Fund allows us to be a school that celebrates and nurtures the whole child with initiatives such as:
- Natural Grounds Redevelopment Project: The transforming of our asphalt schoolyard to a green space where our students interact and fall in love with nature each day.
- Camp HCS: Where Everyone Camps! Our annual camping trip and the culmination of a year-round environmental education program. Kindergartners to middle school students use their skills and knowledge in a new environment. With the sun on their faces, our student shine.
- The Global Citizen Leadership: From school celebrations of different cultures to travel opportunities, this initiative gives students the opportunity to experience the world beyond Milwaukee.
- S.T.E.A.M. for All: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math! These are the tools students need to be innovators thinkers of our future. From after school robotics and coding to artists in residence integrating art and music into the school day, students have the opportunity to learn how to problem-solve.
Express to the whole community that you support every single student’s journeys towards cultivating their leadership skills, their talents, their knowledge of the world and their sense of caring for all living things. Give a donation today!
