Mrs. Allison Thomas

Dear Highland Elementary School Community,

My name is Allison Thomas and I am excited about working with the students, their families and community at Highland Elementary School.  I feel that we all need to work together in order to best serve our students.  My leadership vision is to make a positive difference in the lives of children, every decision, every day is made for the children with the whole child in mind. I started my career 19 years ago in Harnett County as a School Counselor and served in that capacity for 17 years.  I was very fortunate to be able to transition to a new role as an Assistant Principal and have served in this capacity for 2 years.  Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.
