Greetings from Dr. Penny Pruitt, Highlands HS Principal

Dr. PruittDr. Penny Pruitt is honored to serve as the principal at Highlands High School.  Dr. Pruitt is beginning her 29th year in education, and she is excited to have the students returning to in-person learning this year.  She looks forward to guiding the campus in the upward trend of academic growth that began prior to COVID.  She believes that increasing opportunities for all students to have access to rigorous courses, maintaining an instruction-driven focus at the campus, and preparing students for post-secondary life is the key to success.  In order to achieve this,  Dr. Pruitt believes that building relationships with students and their families is essential.
