Highland School sits in the town's northwest corner, just off Rt. 68 by the Cheshire town line, on a hill overlooking Sheehan High School. It serves students who live on and near Highland Ave., in northern Ridgeland, and north and south of Rt. 68 between Grove Street and the Cheshire border. The one-story plant is 10 separate buildings linked by window-walled halls, with 22 classrooms. Each grade shares a "pod" of rooms including the individual classrooms, an activity area, and restrooms. Highland is home to approximately 300 preschool to second grade students each year.
