Highland Preschool is expanding! Currently an addition is being added to the Elementary building to accommodate four preschool classrooms! Construction is estimated to be completed in early Fall 2023. Preschool classes will have a delayed start date that coincides with construction completion.
The Highland Preschool program is a combination of integrated classrooms and general education classrooms. An Integrated Preschool Program is an inclusive program providing services to children who are three years old to school age. These classrooms are taught by a licensed preschool intervention specialist and supported by one or two educational assistants, maintaining at least a 2:16 ratio. General Education classrooms are taught be a general education teacher with support of an intervention specialist and one or two educational assistants. The preschool program is a rich learning environment for students with and without special needs. For the 2023-2024 school year, our program will encompass four classrooms, each being half day programs. The students attend class Monday through Thursday.
Peer model students must turn 3 before the start of the school year to be considered for enrollment in preschool. In order to begin the process of enrollment, please complete the Preschool Application and return. Students must reside within the Highland Local School district. Be aware we are operating on a waitlist for our preschool so there is no guarantee that your child will be able to attend due to the extensive waitlist. Tuition for the 2023-24 school year is $185/month.
- Once your child is on the waitlist they will stay on the list until they attend kindergarten if there is no spot available. At times, due to family circumstances an opening may become available during the school year and families will be contacted from the waitlist to fill the opening.
