Good Afternoon Highland Families!

I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the last couple of days of summer vacation. I want to welcome each of you to the 2023-24 school year! I look forward to working with you and hope you are as excited as I am about the upcoming year. On Tuesday, Sept. 5th, we will be welcoming approximately 556 students back to Highland High School and are committed to working hard to help all of our students reach their personal best. With your assistance and your child’s efforts, I am certain the 2023-24 school year will prove to be yet another successful year at Highland High School! We look forward to another school year full of learning and adventure!

Go Scots!

Chad Carpenter, Principal
