2019-2020 - Principal's Message



Welcome to Highland High School – Home of the Scots! We also extend a special welcome to the Class of 2023, our freshman class. Now in our 49TH year, the staff and students have established a tradition of excellence. Highland is a “school of choice,” distinguished by achieving success in academics, athletics, arts, and activities. Our mission is to prepare our students to be competitively successful in post-secondary pursuits, and we ask for your involvement and support as we focus on PLAID—PRIDE, LEADERSHIP, ATTITUDE, INTEGRITY and DETERMINATION.


We look forward to developing effective partnerships between parents, students, staff, and community to ensure student success. Our student information system, ParentVUE, is one tool teachers, students and parents use to support students. ParentVUE allows parents to track academic progress and attendance. Parents may also email teachers regarding student progress. We use Blackboard, our newest communication tool, to announce important school events and to contact parents in the event of an emergency. Parents may opt to receive information three ways: by phone, email, or text (additional charges may apply). Please see the Parent Center for information.


We want our students to enjoy high school, one of the most fun-filled, memorable periods of their lives, so we encourage each student to become actively involved in the school by participating in one of the many opportunities for co-curricular involvement. Our strong program provides students access to elective offerings, clubs and organizations, visual and performing arts, academic competition teams, and athletics.


We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and find it informative. Please take time to explore our web pages, and thank you for your continued support of Highland High School.
