Principal’s Message

Dear Lancers,

It is an honor to be the interim principal at Hilltop High School and join this wonderful community – The Home of the Lancers!  I stepped into this role on January 27 and realize the timing of this change could be unnerving for some of you but please be assured that my role will be to support what is already in place, continue to advance the school initiatives, and work closely with the staff and the community.  My plan is to close the year successfully and lay the foundation for a successful opening of the next school year.

I come to Hilltop High School with 35 years of experience as a counselor, assistant principal, principal, and director before retiring in 2019.  Please know that I am excited to return as principal.  I believe the relationships between families and the schools are vital to the success of our students. I look forward to working with you, our students, and staff to realize the Lancer vision and mission.  I bring my experiences, my openness to learn, and my student-centered approach to support or work in student success.  I look forward to the teamwork and support we can give each other till the end of the year.

In partnership,

Elaine Elefante-Leano

Interim Principal
