Upper School Athletics
At Highland School, the overall objective of our athletic program is to provide an opportunity for student participation in properly supervised and controlled activities. Accordingly, Highland’s athletic department encourages and supports broad participation from as many students as possible.
While participation is the primary objective of our Upper School athletics program, we take great pride in the successes we've had at both the conference and state level since the Upper School was originally founded in 1996. Each year, 78% of our Upper School students participate in at least one varsity-level sport. Since 2000, Highand teams have won 11 state titles in six different sports.
Member of the Delaney Athletic Conference (DAC)
