About Highland's PTO

Our story

The Highland PTO invites you to join us to make a difference in the education and quality of life for your child.  Parent involvement is the cornerstone of every PTO.  Being involved with your child's school has a positive effect on your child's well being and academic achievement as well as benefitting teachers and the entire school community.

The Highland Parent-Teacher Organization (P.T.O.) has the following objectives:

1)     To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school and the community;

2)     To raise the standards of home life;

3)     To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth;

4)     To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth;

5)     To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, social, and spiritual education.
