Behavior Standards

The Lifelong Guidelines & Lifeskills are the behavior standards of the Highlands school community and are based on respect for others and self. They are taught by modeling and acknowledging others' use of them on a daily basis. All students are expected to develop and practice good citizenship through the use of the Lifelong Guidelines and Lifeskills. These are guideposts for success in life, not just rules for the classroom.
