the HIGHLANDER ACADEMY
We are a supportive and inclusive educational community, home to students in grades 9-12 in need of a small and personalized educational program. Highlander Academy students are part of the student body of West Milford High School. This program is supported by highly qualified high school teachers, child study team members, school social workers, therapists, nurses and district administrators. Our school culture is built on respect and trust as we recognize and embrace individual differences and strengths of our students.
The staff at Highlander Academy, in partnership with the local community, provide a learning environment filled with rich experiences that build upon academic, social, emotional, and physical development of the whole student to support each individual with their post-secondary goals. High quality clinical services are made available to our students as well as opportunities to participate in courses at the West Milford High School campus. We have high expectations for our students and encourage them to always seek new opportunities to continue to develop their strength to meet their goals.
