About HPPDS

Mission and Philosophy

Highland Park Presbyterian Day School partners with families to educate the whole child within a nurturing Christian environment

HPPDS believes that the years of early childhood are the most crucial to the establishment of sound educational practices and biblical values. The school strives to meet the needs of the whole child through a developmentally appropriate approach to learning. It is the task of the Christian educators in the Highland Park Presbyterian Day School to become partners with parents and to build a firm foundation for each child’s later learning and growth.

Our goals:

  • To provide loving, Christian educators who are committed to helping children build a foundation of Christian principles
  • To work alongside families and community partners to provide our students with an excellent early childhood school experience
  • To use engaging, developmentally appropriate curriculum that addresses the whole child and is tailored by teachers to meet the needs of each child
  • To inspire all children to reach their fullest potential by providing a safe, caring environment in which children are encouraged to explore and ask questions
