Higley District to offer SAT exam for young, accelerated students
Higley Unified School District will offer the SAT test on Dec. 1 at Higley High. While this test is open to all students, this specific opportunity is designed to give young, accelerated students a chance to better prepare for future college entrance exams. Spaces are limited.
Information about the SAT for families of younger students will be available during a meeting 7 p.m. Oct. 16 at Williams Field High School in room 199.
In addition, a representative of John Hopkins University will offer an informational meeting about its young talent program, which is available to sixth- to ninth-grade students who receive a qualifying score on the SAT. High-scoring young students will be honored during a ceremony Feb. 12.
To register for the SAT exam, visit the College Board website to create an account. Registration deadline: Nov. 2. Cost: $47.50. Optional essay portion: $17. The essay portion is not required for the talent search program and is not recommended for middle school students.
Fall Break October 1-October 12
Higley High School will be on Fall Break October 1 thru October 12. The office will be closed. We hope that our HHS family has a wonderful break and you enjoy quality time with family and friends. We are excited about all the exciting times ahead and are thankful for all of our HHS students, teachers, and families.
Mental Health Community Awareness Events
Information about community events that address a number of mental health and mental wellness topics, including suicide prevention, coping with stress, depression and anxiety, is now available online.
Parents and guardians are encouraged to research information about each program to determine the best fit for their family audience. The page will be updated as other events become available.
Dear Higley Parents with High School Students:

High school students may also attend a student version of the presentation at the same time. Please open the link below for detailed information.
School Resource Officer Update to Families
Over the past few years the Gilbert Police Department (GPD) has been outfitting their officers with body cameras. Higley Unified School District’s Gilbert secondary campuses utilize School Resource Officers (SROs) from GPD. As of this week, all SROs are now wearing body cameras while on duty. The camera will ONLY be activated during calls for service and investigations, including those on campus. If you have any questions, please contact Gilbert Police.
Higley Unified School District launched an App this spring as a tool for communication with Higley families. The new system will allow schools to send e-mails, as well as push notifications for those who download the app. In order to receive e-mail communication, families must have a current, up-to-date e-mail address on file with their schools. Families that do not have an updated e-mail with the schools may not receive all the communication being sent.
If you have changed your e-mail in the last few months, created a new e-mail or have not provided an e-mail to your school, please do so as quickly as possible. If your child is rolling up to a new school, your current information will transfer with your child.
If you have not downloaded the App, we encourage you to do so. It can be found in your favorite App store.
All HUSD families should sign up for a ParentVue account. This allows parents to view student grades and absences, as well as see – when they are posted – class schedules and teacher information. The district also uses ParentVue during class selection times at the middle schools and high schools.
Sign up requires an IN PERSON visit to the school office. If you already have a ParentVue account, and your child is moving from one HUSD school to another, no action is required. The updated information will appear when it is available.
If you have questions, please contact your school's office.
