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
