The mission of Highlands Elementary School is to provide a quality education by educating every child, every day, whatever it takes. The vision is to have every child reading on or above grade level by third grade. Additionally, Highlands is home to the CHISD elementary bilingual program. Pre-K through fifth grade students who are native Spanish speakers learning English receive bilingual services. Additionally, students who live in the Highlands attendance zone receive Spanish enrichment through campus-wide activities.
