A community north of downtown Dallas, Texas. Highland Park has the biggest concentration of the following you will probably ever see: Skinny, cute blonde girls, cocky, athletic boys, and old money. Many people see Highland Park as a small community where you are looked down upon if you don't drive a BMW at 16 or wear Armani to school every day. Anyone who says this has never gotten to know kids in Highland Park. Kids dress essentially the same as any other high school in America, and drive average cars. Some kids drive very expensive cars, but most kids pay for their own.
Also HP is often called the "bubble" because unless you have a reason to go outside of HP (i.e. work, school, etc) there is no reason to. It has everything you could ever need in this 25 square mile community. HP is also the most expensive community to live in within Texas.
The landscape is a very tightly compacted residential area with a very large house popping up every once in awhile. This is because way back in the day people bought small houses on small lots in HP, but now people are buying ajacent lots and building large houses on them.
Highland Park High School has consistently made Newsweek's Top 25 American High Schools. This is because of their superb academics, and they also have one of the greatest overall athletic programs anywhere in the United States. So far, this year they have been state champions in football, golf, girl's swimming & diving, tennis, and wrestling. And we havent even concluded spring sports.
Highland Park sure is swell!!
