STUDENT REVIEWS (2018):

  • "The results interpretation session helped me understand better what are my strengths, how to apply them, and confirmed my decision for a major." (Ivan, rising 11th grader)

  • "Ms. Landis-Santos and I reviewed my results from the Highlands Battery. I learned a lot about how I tick and things/skills that come naturally to me. I did not come into this process with high hopes because I have taken tons of personality assessments before that led to nowhere. I was very pleasantly surprised with how much I got out of my time with Ms. Landis-Santos and I would highly recommend this to anyone else." (Janine, after freshman year of college)

  • "The Highlands testing and personal consultation gave me a deeper understanding of my abilities. I liked that the process examined me as a whole person, not just as someone looking for a career path. As an MBA student, my goal from taking Highlands was to get some clues to help me hone in my industry and function. While it has led me to narrow my focus, I have also become more comfortable leaving some uncertainty to my career path because I now know better what characteristics my future job will need to satisfy me as a person." (Joe, graduate student)
