My name is Scott Hilger and I am serving my 2nd year as the Assistant Principal at Highland Elementary School. 

This is my 15th year with Omaha Public Schools.  During my journey with OPS I have served many populations of students, with excellent exposure to best practices and leadership. My working experience prior to Highland Elementary includes 6 years as Assistant Principal at Boyd Elementary and 7 years as a Physical Education teacher in OPS.  I have also served as an Athletic Director and Computer Science teacher in Plattsmouth, NE. 

I am a graduate of Wayne State College with a Bachelor's Degree in K-12 Physical Education and Health and a Master's Degree in Educational Administration and Supervision from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. 

I believe it takes a strong combination of school, community, and parent support for students to reach their highest potential. 

It's an honor to join the Highland Community. 

Please feel welcome to stop by to visit, my door is always open.
