Highland Park High School Ambassadors
The purpose of the Highland Park High School Student Ambassadors is to serve as the "first face" of HPHS. They are a select group of about 50 student leaders who are trained to assist with important public relations and communication services for HPHS. The Ambassadors inform students and parents about HPHS’s programs, including academics and extra-curricular opportunities. They personalize the campus and make visitors feel welcome and comfortable by demonstrating sincerity, enthusiasm, credibility, interest, and helpfulness. The Ambassadors is an organization that exists to support HPHS through professional service while upholding and sharing its rich traditions.

The HPHS Student Ambassadors program was begun by the HPHS Counseling Department in 2012 to help meet the demands of making our guests and students (both current and new) feel more a part of HPHS.
