The History


The Highland Park Education Foundation (HPEF) began in 1996 with the desire to help Highland Park public schools achieve high academic goals and build for the future. HPEF was established by motivated parents, community and business leaders to assist and support the educational excellence of our public schools. Since then, through fundraising efforts and community involvement, HPEF has been able to provide opportunities that enhance student learning and achievement, and promote social and emotional development.

​​Excellent public schools are a community investment for today and tomorrow
