Letter by Anne Holton Secretary of Education for Virginia

Welcome and thank you for visiting our Highland View Elementary School website.  We invite you to look through our pages for information you may need to become acquainted with our school programs, faculty, and staff.



Highland View is a pre-k through fifth grade facility serving approximately 200 students and families.  We affectionately consider our building to be the Grand Dame of Bristol.  She is the oldest elementary school in the Bristol Virginia Public School system, but with each school day she grows in character and charm.  Our faculty and staff manage their classrooms with this concept in mind and treat all students like family!


The Highland View faculty and staff strongly believe that student physical, social, and mental health, along with proper nutrition; contribute to academic success, life-long learning and more healthy lifestyles.  Empowered by our supportive school board and superintendent, they facilitate several programs dedicated to giving our students every advantage possible to reach their fullest potentials.


Highland View Elementary School has an early morning Bearcat Running Club that meets at 7:20 a.m. each morning Monday through Thursday. This club is designed to encourage physical fitness, provide social support, and group work ethic to build the spirit of team work.  Students in second grade to fifth grade are encouraged to participate.  Parents and family members of our club members are encouraged to walk/run with the students.  Morning transportation must be provided by families.


In addition to the Running Club, our faculty and staff offer a comprehensive After School program for students in kindergarten to fifth grade.  This program is offered Monday through Thursday with selected activities for certain grade levels on Friday. The program extends the school day from 3:00-5:00 p.m. with transportation provided by BVPS buses on normally scheduled routes.  The After School program begins after the Labor Day holiday this year.  Look for additional information about the After School program which will be sent home in the student’s daily folders.


Thank you for visiting the Highland View website.  If you have suggestions or comments, please do not hesitate to call and let us know how we may be of assistance to you and your family.


Our goal is to “Be the Difference” in our student’s and families’ lives in 2014-2015!

Books for Bearcats


To encourage plenty of reading this summer  Highland View will be sending home 15 self selected books with each student grades Pre-K through 5th grade during the last week of school.


Midway through the summer we will have a swap out  night where students can come to Highland View, return the first books, and choose 15 new ones to borrow.  Watch your mail for information about the date of the mid-summer swap.


Communities in Schools Coordinator for Highland View is Mrs. Carrie Goss.
