Welcome to Highlands High School
Home of the Mighty
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.
SAISD is selecting our new Superintendent! As part of this process, the Board is seeking input on the qualities the community would like to see in the next Superintendent. Join us on February 4 at 6:00pm in the auditorium for a Town Hall event to share feedback in-person or on zoom.

Highlands High School is proud to be a recipient of College Board's Female Diversity Award for AP Computer Science Principles. Research shows that female students who take APCSP in high school are more than five times as likely to major in computer science in college. Let’s go Owls!
All students return to school on Tuesday, January 11. We will follow a NEW academic calendar and bell schedule (A/B Block Schedule). Please see updated links below.
Back to School Basics:
All students should report to the school cafeteria by 8:30am. Parent drop-off takes place in front of the school along Elgin Avenue and SAISD bus drop off is behind the campus near the cafeteria. Student entry begins at 8:15am each morning unless students have a tutoring pass. Schedules can be viewed electronically on Frontline Parent Portal.

Highlands HS NEW Dual Language Campus!
We are so excited to become a dual language campus starting in 2021-2022. See flyers below for detailed information on what a dual language campus designation means for students!
Dr. 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.
