Depends what you mean by high-pass (kilohertz? megahertz? Gigahertz?) and what you mean by breadboard (white plastic object with lotsa-holes - better be kilohertz)
In general, keep wires short and tidy, but if dealing with the white plastic lotsa-holes type, short wires will only help a little at higher frequencies, where the vast amounts of stray capacitance will significantly impede the function of the filter - at which point you might want to move to a prototype that's built by soldering things onto (or above - look for "dead-bug" examples) a circuit board with a ground plane underlying everything. Sometimes you can cut a few islands into the copper coated board, or you can add separate islands or strips on top of the copper-coated board.
