Advanced Placement (AP) Testing this Spring

In order for HHS students to receive the full AP weight (1) in an AP class, they must take the AP exam. Otherwise, students will only receive Honors (.5) weight for the AP class.

Due to the delayed start to the school year, AP is offering a later testing window for students. AP testing will now take place between May 18-27. Click here to view the updated AP Exam Schedule.

Family First Night 3/22

The Highland Schools is pleased to offer the 4th Annual “Family First” Night on Monday, March 22. This district-wide initiative is an opportunity for our Highland families to spend an uninterrupted evening together! In an effort to encourage a dedicated “family night,” the district is offering one night free from homework (with no tests on March 23), athletic events or other extra-curricular activities so that families can connect and spend quality time together. We hope that you are able to enjoy your night together!
