Highland has a Little Library! It is located along the sidewalk near the front of the school and you may enjoy books 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This library is free, but when you borrow books please either return them or donate one in exchange so that everyone may enjoy the books. If you have books to donate, please bring them to the Main Office.

Highland students can help choose the winner by reading the books and voting for their favorites. Visit the Black-eyed Susan display in the Media Center to check them out!
We subscribe to a number of online books, databases, encyclopedias, as well as a video streaming service. These can be used at school or at home. Some require passwords, which will be sent home in September. Click on the images to open the sites.
