The Highlands teacher must be able to follow the Highlands curriculum guide (scope & sequence, standards, benchmarks, and resources) and couple it with their own personal curriculum plan (yearlong, unit, and lesson plans) and deliver from a Christian worldview their best, most rigorous and enthusiastic teaching to a diverse audience. Administratively Highlands is proud of the dedication and commitment of Highlands teachers to the eternal lives of Highlands students and facilitating their success in school and in their postsecondary endeavors!
