Welcome to Highlands High School

Highlands High School is the premier school of the Southeast Side of San Antonio featuring strong academics, engaging career preparation, and award-winning student activities. We are a school with tremendous pride and a long legacy of success. Our new Highlands P-TECH for Aerospace, Engineering, Manufacturing and Welding combines the academic opportunity of an Early College with the technical skill and job outlook of a vocational or trade school. Mighty Owls can join a number of successful extra-curricular programs including athletics, JROTC, National Honor Society, and an incredible fine arts program (brigade/dance/cheer, band, mariachi, choir, orchestra, art, and theatre art). Highlands High School is YOUR neighborhood school and we can’t wait to welcome you to the Owl Nation.
