Our Mission at Highland Park is to prepare each student to participate productively and responsibly in society.

A Message from Dr. New...

Highland Park High School has been a historical fixture within the Topeka community for decades.  With graduates such as astronaut Ron Evans, biochemist Dr. Julius Rebek, Jr., Olympic wrestler Melvin Douglas, and a host of exemplary business people, coaches, educators, and others, our students have many role models to inspire them to “get there from here.”  Supported by a School Improvement Grant, we are highly optimistic about our future.  Our goals include improved assessment scores, improved community relationships, an enhanced curriculum, and the empowerment of students to utilize their academic resources and achieve their potential.  We are creating a culture of success one day, one step, and one student at a time.
