PHILOSOPHY

Highlands International School is a Christian school founded upon the belief that God is the source of all truth, and therefore true education is in accordance with His revealed Word, the Bible. We are dedicated to establishing a godly environment where the Bible is actively integrated into all aspects of school life. The purpose of education is to cooperate with parents to develop in students the knowledge and character that will enable them to fulfill their role within God’s plan.

 

Education at Highlands is characterized by a student-centered, and well-rounded curriculum with a high expectation for student achievement. We believe that respect for authority is an essential ingredient to quality education and character development; therefore, our classrooms are controlled with firm, loving discipline by qualified and dedicated teachers.

Our international atmosphere provides a welcome environment for students of all cultures, which fosters positive self-worth and mutual respect.

(John 14:6; John 17:17; I Corinthians 10:31; Deuteronomy 6:6,7; II Timothy 2:15; Hebrews 12:6-11; Revelation 7:9,10)
