In order to maximize our students’ success, it is necessary to find a balance between academics, extra-curricular activities and community engagement. School-life balance is important for optimal academic functioning. At Highland, we recognize that students often prioritize academics at the expense of personal factors, including relationships and exercise. This can lead to a decline in academic performance, as general health and well-being are critical to academic success. We strive to ensure our international students forge relationships that maximize their sense of support and assist our students in finding ways to integrate school and personal life by offering a wide range of on and off campus activities.
