Home of the Green Hornets!

Welcome to Highland City Elementary School – the “Best Kept Secret” in the Highlands of Lakeland!  We envision our school to be a place where students, parents, staff and our community work together as a team to support a safe and positive learning environment which fosters students’ academic excellence, nurtures creativity, and develops responsible citizens.

Principal’s Message

The end of the first semester is fast approaching, as the last day of the second grading period is January 12. That marks the halfway point in the school year. As we visit classrooms, we love talking with students about what they are learning. Be sure to ask your student what he or she has learned about each day. You are sure to learn a lot! We hope all our Green Hornet families have a great winter break and enjoy a lot of family time. Be sure to spend some time reading with your students and talking about what you read. Be safe and we will see you back at school on January 3rd.
