Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year!

Welcome to the Highland School District!  This year promises to be a continued celebration of the legacy of educational excellence that defines our school system.

Our vision, mission and goals allow us to promote a culture of high academic achievement and performance. Last year, Highland once again received both the “Overall A Award” and the “Momentum Award” from the State of Ohio and is consistently ranked as one of the highest performing school districts in Ohio. Additionally, Highland High School received a Top 40 ranking by U.S. News and World Report among 916 Ohio high schools. Our 2019 graduates were an amazing group of young adults, awarded nearly $4.6 million in academic and athletic scholarships. I am confident that we will continue to hear of their many successes in the future. 

We are fortunate to have a highly qualified and caring teaching, support and administrative staff within the Highland Schools, in addition to highly engaged and supportive parents and community members. This collaborative partnership plays a vital role in the educational success of every child.

We have so much to be proud of – and grateful for – here in the Highland Schools. I wish you and your family a successful year of learning!
