School Reviews

5   2/10/2014
I highly recommend this school. It is like a private school but is a pubic school. The teachers and support staff of Atlantic Highlands is a warming caring group of individuals. They go out of their way to meet the needs of all their students and parents. It is very rare to find a group of individuals work so well together and they treat all the children with love and laughter.
