Principal's Message

I am humbled and deeply honored to be the principal of Highland Elementary School. I have spent my entire professional career in Inglewood Unified School District, all at Highland. 

During this time, I have served in various roles, including grade level chair, instructional leadership team member, AVID teacher, PTA member, teachers union representative, and basketball coach.
I am a very proud member of the Husky family, who over the years has worked with our community partners, to help earn Highland Elementary a National Blue Ribbon award, two California Distinguished School awards and a Title 1 Academic Achievement award. I look forward to working with our community members to bring these recognitions back to Highland.

I am also a lifelong Los Angeles area resident and a proud product of California public schools. Along the way I've had the privilege of having a supportive family, teachers with high expectations and a strong, "village" which helped me reach my educational goals. All of them have played a role in preparing for this moment. 

I know Highland's best days are ahead and our potential is limitless. 
Educationally yours,
Mr. Jones

IUSD Parents Complete the Alternate Income Form Now!

Dear Parents and School Communities,

Thank you for helping to get the 2022-2023 school year off to a great start! We truly appreciate your support of your students and our schools.


Under the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), a portion of state funding will be determined based on the demographics of student population, with higher funding on a per student basis for districts like Inglewood that have large concentrations of low-income, English Language Learner and foster student populations. Therefore, we are required to establish and confirm the number of students that represent these categories by having families complete the official LCFF form.


Our goal is to ensure that Inglewood’s students receive the maximum amount of funds that we are eligible to receive by encouraging our schools to complete the LCFF form. To receive the maximum amount, we must have 100% of eligible students/families complete the form.

By completing the form and turning it in as soon as possible, you will help our schools reach the above stated goal and greatly contribute to enabling us to better serve our students.
