Highland Oaks Elementary School is one of the six elementary schools in the Arcadia Unified School District. The faculty partners with parents to foster a student body of lifelong learners. Highland Oaks Elementary School teachers often draw on the wisdoms of UCLA coach John Wooden. Wooden's sayings, such as "Be confident: Believe in you!" are as much a part of the curriculum as math and science. Dr. Ilene Anderson serves as principal.
