Principal’s Corner

Andrea Mitchell, H. Allen Hight school principal

I became your principal in January 2021 and for those who have not yet met me, let me introduce myself. I have been in education for over 25 years and with Natomas since 2006. I have worked at multiple sites including Leroy Greene Middle School, Jefferson Elementary, H. Allen Hight Elementary and Inderkum High School. I taught 5th and 6th grades at these sites and worked here at Hight for 5 years as a 5th grade teacher and 1 year as the assistant principal before going to Inderkum High School. I  was at Inderkum for the last 3 1/2 years as an assistant principal and loved learning with Principal Motherspaw and the amazing staff! My dream has always been to return to Hight as principal, and I am truly honored to be back!

Our school staff is dedicated to providing all of our students with opportunities to grow and offer support that may be needed. Failure is NOT an option. Our teachers are well prepared to use small group instruction for reading and math as well as our IB framework to address needed skills for all of our students whether it is intervention or enrichment. We are here to partner with you to help you and your child achieve their goals! Let’s continue to work together and follow the Cheetah Way: BE Safe, BE Responsible and BE Respectful!
