Imagine a school where all students and families feel valued; where all students meet and exceed standards; where all students are engaged in rigorous academics integrated with enriching opportunities. This is Highland Park Middle School.
Teaming is generally considered the heart and soul of the middle school model. Highland Park Middle implements core subject teaming that consists of four teachers who share a group of students.
Highland Park Junior High offers a wide-range of enrichment opportunities for students ranging from afterschool help to interest-based clubs to field trips to academic competitions.
From athletics to Lego Leagues, HPMS is proud of the many after school activities that are provided. These programs are meant to offer students an opportunity to engage in activities they have interests in.
Charlene Hoff has been with Saint Paul Public Schools for nearly 25 years, and works to make Highland Middle School as much a community as an education setting.

We have seen an increase in student cell phone use at school. Remind your student that if s/he has a cell phone at school, it needs to be turned off during the school day. Parents should contact the office if they need to reach their student. We have been reminding students (and ask that you do, also) that they are not allowed to text, videotape or take pictures of other students at school with their cell phone. If a student is not following these rules, their phone will be confiscated and parents will need to come to school and retrieve the phone from an administrator. Thank you for helping us focus our work on educating your student and removing this potential distraction. Please note also that HPMS is not responsible for lost or stolen cell phones.
Students staying after school need to be under adult supervision. Students staying after who are not in the Scots After School program need to be picked up by parents right after they have finished working with a teacher after school. Students who are staying after school to watch an athletic event need to be under the supervision of a parent/guardian/chaperone from 2:00 PM until the end of the athletic event. Students who are picked up every day because they do not have bus transportation need to be picked up at 2:00 PM.
Spring break begins on Monday March 31, and classes resume on Monday April 7th. Parents if your student will be gone longer or leaving early for spring break, please remember to put that in writing to Principal Hoff. We hope that you have a safe and restful spring break after what has proven to be a long, very long cold winter.
