The Heights Community School has 3 fifth grade classrooms. We take a number of field trips each year, to places including: Valley Branch, Como Planetarium, the Recycling Center, the Science Museum of Minnesota (including the laser show and omnitheater).
The Heights students also have the opportunity to receive remedial academics and enrichment at the EDL (Extended Day Learning) classes which are offered two afternoons a week at The Heights.
Teachers hold high expectations for our students' social concerns, such as safety, health, and respect for others. This calculates into a healthy learning environment which has proved itself with increased test scores for our fifth grade students.
