Our students will attend safe schools that enhance student learning and well-being. Every learner, PK through adult, has the right to be educated in a safe, respectful and welcoming environment. Every educator has the right to teach in an atmosphere free from disruption and obstacles that impede learning.

Principal's Message

Hello Highland Community!
I am happy to welcome all of you into the 2020 New Year! My name is Robert Dawson and I am the proud new principal of Highland Elementary School. Highland Elementary is a TK-6th Grade school located in Inglewood, California. As a former high school history teacher and assistant principal, I am excited to lead Highland into the new decade! With the support of the faculty, staff, and the greater Highland community the goal is to return our school greatness. Highland Elementary is a former recipient of the California Distinguished School Award and a National Blue Ribbon Award and it is my intent to bring those very recognition's back to our school campus.  
Our school community is dedicated to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience.  While the common core curriculum is provided for all students, we believe that it is critical to provide leadership opportunities, character education and exposure to technology in order to prepare our students to compete in the 21st Century.
At Highland we strive to provide students and parents with an atmosphere that is welcoming, safe and educationally stimulating. Our overarching goal is to give students the tools they need to be successful in college, or a career of their choosing. We are committed to building relationships with students, parents, and the community to provide students with the capacity to become effective members of society as well as agents for a positive change in our world.
I look forward to serving you and your child every day!
Rob Dawson
Highland Principal
