Superintendent Karen Cheser stated, “Brian Robinson has been a phenomenal principal for Highlands High School, and he will be hard to replace. Fortunately, current Assistant Principal Jeff Schneider has agreed to fulfill the role this year as interim. Jeff will provide consistency and continuity as well as bring new ideas to the role at a time when state standards and accountability systems are changing.”

"I am humbled, honored and especially excited to lead Highlands,” said Schneider.  “I am confident that we will continue to accomplish great things because of the extraordinary faculty and staff assembled at HHS. Our team is stronger than ever, and I am thankful to be a part of such a great school." 

Schneider will begin serving as interim principal on August 1, 2017.  An interim assistant principal will be named at a later date.
