Highcroft Drive Elementary School is an Honor School of Excellence and has been for the last seven years since it was opened by the current principal in 2004. At Highcroft we have a strong sense of community pride and effort. Our guiding principle is "People don't care how much we know until they know how much we care." (Author unknown)
Highcroft teachers and staff build positve, nurturing relationships with students so that children feel safe, supported and encouraged to achieve to each child's potential. We work hard to form cooperative partnerships with our parents who trust us with their child's education. It is an honor and privlege to educate each and every child.
In addition to the talented teachers and staff, another of the greatest benefits of Highcroft is the tremendous support we receive from our parents and the PTA. Numerous volunteers work cooperatively with our teachers to enhance the instructional program. The PTA organization sponsors many additional programs and events to enhance each child's education and build positive school spirit.
