At Heights Terrace,
we will not judge anyone by the color of their skin
or language that they speak,
but by the content of their character.
Adapted from Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.
elcome to our school ! The quote listed above is not just a politically correct phrase we use to sound good, but something that we live by at Heights. We strive to respect each person as a unique individual with talents, feelings and short comings. It is our goal to provide every student with a quality education as well as providing an atmosphere of respect and acceptance. When your child enters our classrooms, they have joined our family and will be treated as such.
Understand that our expectations are high. We hold acceptance, tolerance, respect and understanding in high regard. We expect each person to perform to his or her personal best, this includes students, faculty, staff, administrators, as well as parents; no excuses ! Please explore our site and feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
