Climb Higher at Highland

Highland Elementary is a public school located in Downers Grove, IL., which serves nearly 400 students from Kindergarten through 6th grade.

Our group, Climb Higher at Highland was formed as a fundraising initiative to revitalize and rebuild the playground at Highland.

In addition to extensive drainage and usability issues, our current playground is old, rusty, and outdated. Furthermore, much of our equipment no longer meets safety requirements and is challenging for our special needs students to navigate and enjoy.

We are raising money to build a playground that is safe, functional, and most importantly, one that is accessible so that all our students can enjoy that much needed movement break during the school day.

Our goal is for all students and members of our community whether they are typically functioning, in wheelchairs, use walkers or have leg braces, and those with physical, sensory, and motor impairments, to be able enjoy our playground as a participant, instead of as an observer.

We appreciate your support on our adventure of building a safe, fun, and accessible playground for Highland Elementary School.
