My name is Rich Hills II and I'm extremely proud to be leading Highland Elementary School! We have a diverse student population and our Future Leaders each have unique strengths and talents. Our educators and support staff are honored to work with your children as they grow socially, emotionally, and academically! Our top-notch Highland staff members are here for THE KIDS! Thank you for sharing the Pride & Joys of your lives with us!
I'm entering my 28th year in the field of education. I've served as a 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th-grade educator, a dean of students, an instructional coach, and a principal. I'm beginning my 10th year as the principal of Highland Elementary School.
I'm blessed to have a caring, loving, and supportive family! I have 3 incredible children! My oldest daughter Jayden is a freshman at Rifle High School. My middle child Kyra is a 7th grader at Rifle Middle School. My son Haven is a 5th grader at Highland Elementary school. Our family enjoys sports and we spend a lot of time traveling to sporting events and rooting for each other throughout the school year and summer months. We also enjoy being outdoors and active together! FAMILY IS EVERYTHING!
