Welcome to Highland Park High School


The third marking period of this school year is nearing its end on April 19th and our students continue their efforts in class while the Class of 2017 looks forward to graduation in June!

Spring sports are underway!  Come out and support our Baseball and Softball Teams and definitely try to catch a Spring Track meet! Down at Donaldson Park you could also catch some thrilling Boys Tennis matches as well.

Our Band, Orchestra, and Choir are preparing for their spring concerts and competitions, and the production of Hairspray, our spring musical, was phenomenal.

Fifteen students will be attending the DECA International competition in California and our Model UN/Congress program HPMUNC  returned from the Mexico City International Model UN as the Best Delegation overall with students winning numerous individual awards!

Our counselors have met with almost every student to plan schedules for 2017-18.  Students and parents/guardians are encouraged to review our Program Planning guide fully in order to make the best decisions for course selections.  Please continue to take full advantage of Naviance accounts to make post-secondary school plans and set goals for college and/or careers as well.

Remember that we are the OWLS, and our mission is for each of our students to demonstrate Openness, Wisdom, Leadership, and Spirit as they prepare for college, future careers, and active participation in society.  We are dedicated to serving our students and guiding them as they fulfill this mission.
