Freshman - Welcome to Highland High School

There’s nothing quite like your first year of high school. A new world awaits, and the Highland High School Counseling Department wants to help you make the most of the experience.  Welcome to the Hawk Family!

Coming to high school may seem overwhelming and exciting all at the same time.  The counseling department is here to help you negotiate your first year and actually all four years as part of the HHS Hawk Family.  We encourage you to make appointments with your counselor throughout the year to discover options for success in high school and planning what happens after high school.


 Get to know your Counselor- Counselors are assigned to students based on their last name and you will have the same counselor throughout high school.  You can schedule an appointment with your counselor or if you have a quick question, come during our open door counseling hours.
