Principal's message

Dear Students,
The Administration and Faculty of Hope Highlands is extremely excited for the 2019-2020 school year as we continue working collaboratively towards creating a culture of achievement and a school that we will all be proud of. Hopefully, you share in our enthusiasm and are looking forward to taking part in all the new and exciting opportunities that this upcoming school year will provide.
I encourage all students to enhance their educational experience by participating in a wide variety of opportunities that are available to you. In addition to our strong academic program, we offer a variety of social, athletic and extracurricular opportunities. Please take advantage of all that HHMS has to offer to provide you with a full and meaningful educational experience.
Take pride in being a part of the Hope Highlands legacy and become an active participant in as many activities as possible. Accept and seek all of its wealth of learning and study, and consistently put forth your best effort. Respect yourself, your family, your school, and the rights of others with whom you share your school experiences. Have a positive attitude and be willing to work hard to achieve your goals. We plan on setting high expectations for everyone here at Hope Highlands Middle School, however no one will expect more of you than you are capable of achieving. The primary goal of our school will be to help you acquire the skills needed to be a successful student at the high school level. Persevering, effectively communicating with others, and developing independence through confidence and maturity, are key components of the Hope Highlands Middle School experience. I wish you all the best in the coming school year and look forward to building traditions that align with the core values and beliefs of our school community!
Respectfully,
Alexander C. Kanelos
Principal
