Principal’s Message

Greetings HHS Family! Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!

I hope that you and your family are safe and healthy at this time.  Before we start the journey of the upcoming year, it is vital that we continue to recognize the Class of 2021!  We know you will make us proud as you move on to the next chapters in your lives.

As we continue to reinvent what education looks like, you will continue to hear from me on a weekly basis via email, phone, and text message.  In addition, we will continue our weekly Community Forum meetings to keep everyone informed of HHS events.

Our student body is beautifully diverse, and we take pride in learning from each other.  The common goal is to prepare students beyond the Profile of a Virginia Graduate.  We aim to accomplish this using the Henrico Learner Profile and through HHS Core Values: ACCOUNTABILITY, INTEGRITY, and RESPECT.  Panther Pride is in the AIR!

WE have an incredibly DEDICATED staff at HHS who work tirelessly to assist students with positively navigating the unforgettable high school experience.  The outstanding faculty and staff at HHS will ensure that students are LIFE READY and prepared for the world after graduation.

In order to accomplish this task, I encourage all parents to take active roles in your child’s high school experience by being an energetic participant, communicating with teachers, monitoring PowerSchool for grades weekly, and attending school events.  WE must work together to ensure the success of OUR students and OUR COMMUNITY!

Please remember to join the HHS PTSO and assist!  WE need YOU!  Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  I look forward to learning and working with you for years to come, Roll Pride!

Your Proud Principal

Dr. Michael A. Jackson
