Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. El-Shabazz

I am delighted to introduce myself, as a product of  Highland Park Senior High's esteemed class of 2007. I take immense pride in returning to my alma mater in the capacity of Assistant Principal for 9th graders. I look forward to collaborating with students, teachers and families.

My journey in education spans a rewarding five years, during which I have honed my skills and passion for academic growth and personal development. Beyond the realm of education, I proudly hold the distinction of being a United States Army Veteran, a testament to my commitment to public service. 

Prior to my return to Saint Paul Public Schools, I held the position of Dean of Students within District 191, where I furthered my dedication to shaping the educational landscape.Outside of work, I enjoy reading about historical narratives, an interest that enriches my understanding of the world. I have a loving family which keeps me pretty busy. Typically, weekends are dedicated towards  sporting events between basketball, football and soccer.

Overall, as Assistant Principal, I am happy  in my commitment to fostering a dynamic learning environment, nurturing the growth of each student, and upholding the legacy of excellence at Highland Park Senior High.
