It sounds like either the headlight relay is shorted, or the switch is shorted. I'd think that the relay would be in an underhood box, probably near the battery (although there may be several boxes under there). You can swap it with another relay of the same rating (they're usually color-coded in reference to their amperage, so two of the same color would be interchangeable) and see if that works. If not, I'd think maybe the switch needs to be replaced.
Another idea - are these the actual high beams (as in the switch is turned on) or are these the daytime running lights? If it's the daytime running lights, I'd suspect the relay for those (which is separate from the normal headlight relay). You can even try tapping firmly on it a few times with a wrench. A relay is a mechanical switch and they stick sometimes - popping it with a wrench or screwdriver handle sometimes unsticks them.
