Our mission is to cultivate empowered leaders and bold thinkers that create innovative solutions to problems locally and globally.

At highland park scholars focus on issues in the community or the world & complete a project to share their findings and solutions. Our core classes are Science & Math, Humanities (ELA & Social Studies combined), Italian, Art, Music, Technology, and Physical Education. We offer electives where students select a club and rotate through 6 week cycles. Scholars can exit middle school with 6 regents exams. HPCS is student-led; Scholars teach classes, lead clubs & plan events. Everyone belongs to an advisory house and meets with their mentor group weekly. We partner with the Middle School Student Success Center to help scholars navigate through the high school choice process. MSSSC offers tours of high schools and colleges in NYC. Each grade attends tours to universities and historical sites in Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Boston. Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation runs an afterschool program that offers homework help, arts, & sports. HPCS teachers provide afterschool tutoring and Saturday academy for scholars who may need extra support.
