The faculty and staff of High Hills Elementary School excitedly welcome all returning and new students and their families to the 2023-2024 school year. The new school year begins Thursday, August 3, 2023. High Hills, a proud Leader in Me School and Home of the Panthers, serves 4th and 5th grade students only.  In order to accommodate parents with children at multiple schools, a drop-in Jump Start Camp Orientation will be held Wednesday, August 2 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.  Parents may visit at their convenience to meet their child’s teachers and tour the school. Panther Pride t-shirts will be on sale. Classroom supplies and materials have been purchased through Title 1; however, some additional items may be requested by the individual teacher. Visit our website for the generic Supplies List.

Breakfast begins at 7 a.m. Instruction begins at 7:30 a.m. Students will be marked tardy after 7:30 a.m. Parents are able to access the school through the Frierson Road gate and the 441 open-access gate. Car riders should be dropped off and picked up at the designated and supervised area in front of the school.  For your child’s safety, please do not drop students off in the school parking lot or on Frierson Road.
