    About Us

          Welcome to Highland Park!  Our school has undergone many changes since opening as Park School in 1908.  Today, we serve Old Southwest, Downtown Roanoke and the Gainsboro neighborhoods along with a portion of Southeast Roanoke.  Highland Park is also home to one of the two PLATO centers for Roanoke City Schools, serving gifted and talented students from South and Southwest Roanoke schools.  Academic excellence is part of our mission at Highland and we strive to help all students reach their potential.  In 2015, Highland Park was recognized by the Virginia Board of Education with the VIP Distinguished Achievement Award for continuous growth in student achievement.  Besides a focus on academics, Highland provides many opportunities for student exploration, including Spanish, Dance Espanol, VH1 Strings, Odyssey of the Mind, and Happy Healthy Cooks.  Students may also participate in after school experiences through our Running Club, Chess Club, Dance, or Garden Clubs.  We are very fortunate to have two community groups that support Highland Park, our PTA and CIA (Congregations in Action), who provide Pack-a-Snack meals, Fun Day, field trip scholarships and classroom resources for teachers.  Highland is a vibrant, diverse, engaged learning community and we are delighted to provide the highest quality education to all of our families.
