Small teams of students and staff make our school a place where middle school students experience a strong sense of
belonging and connection. Our WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) program develops eighth grade students as leaders
and mentors to our sixth graders, supporting them in a successful transition to middle school. As an accredited site for the
International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP), Highland Middle encourages students to participate in
changes taking place throughout the world. An annual four-day trip to Washington D.C. provides a first-hand look at U.S.
history. In addition to continuing the district’s Spanish Immersion pathway, Highland Middle offers classes in French and
Mandarin Chinese. And for the first time, students advancing to middle school from Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy
will join our school community in fall 2017. We focus on supporting a positive school climate with leadership opportunities for
our students through programs like National Junior Honor Society, Student Council and of course WEB, Dare 2 be Real and
our student-led Gender Sexualities Alliance Club.
