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.
“Information about Academic Accelerated Programs in Polk County (ACCEL) can be found at www.polk-fl.net/staff/teachers/acceleratedprograms.htm. Parent/Guardian must contact their child’s school to submit a Request for Academic Acceleration form prior to June 11th to request acceleration screening for placement the following school year.”
