Public is fearless.


Staff and students share what public education means to them.

"Public is Diversity."

-Alexis Thompson, Senior


“I’ve been to both private and public schools. I have to say Heights High School is one of the most diverse places I’ve ever been exposed to. I’m almost disappointed to go off to college, because I’m not going to get this level of diversity anywhere else.”







"Public is powerful."

-Justin Hons, Teacher


“I teach a US Government course. This gives us the power to transform students from passive observers to active participants.”







"Public is assurance."

-Dr. Talisa L. Dixon, Superintendent


“My goal is to transform the school district, including increasing the number of students graduating from high school who can demonstrate that they are ready for college or a career. This is significant; it's not enough to give them a diploma if they are not prepared to enter the world of work or college. That's why our mission statement includes an emphasis on preparing students for both college and career.”
