Campus News

Thanks to the 2010 bond, Highlands High School was transformed through near-total demolition and reconstruction, while the campus remained occupied. The auditorium was rebuilt using the existing structural frame. The original wood seats were repurposed as acoustic panels—adding character and preserving history.
