    Secondary Buildings
    As HP students move into the secondary levels (Grades 6-12), they transition into accelerated and honors-level coursework as well as having opportunities to participate in a wide variety of co-curricular activities. The secondary level has a full-time Secondary HP Specialist who works closely with teaching staff and guidance counselors.  He also serves as a resource to HP students and their families at each of the four secondary buildings:
     
    • Pearson 6th Grade Center 
    • East Junior High
    • West Junior High
    • Shakopee High School
