Mission Statement

In partnership with our community, Highlands School is dedicated to developing and nurturing the whole child through innovative continuous learning.


The Saugus Union School District is located in Santa Clarita Valley in Northern Los Angeles County. Currently there are approximately 11,000 students attending school at our fifteen K-6 campuses. 14 of the 15 schools have been recognized as California Distinguished Schools, some of them more than once. In addition, five schools have been recognized as National Blue Ribbon Schools. Academic Performance Index (API) scores have been consistently strong and continue to grow each year. All demographic areas of student performance continue to show improvement.


Our PFO is a wonderful organization of parent volunteers who work with the staff and school to organize many amazing activities and fundraisers throughout the year. Some of the highlights include an Annual Carnival, Young Author's Day, Variety Show, Family Fun Nights, Restaurant Nights, School Dance and many more! Visit the Highlands PFO website here.
