I am more proud than ever to be serving as Highline’s superintendent.

The trailblazing work of our teachers, leaders, support staff, families, volunteers, and mentors is paying off in very tangible ways. Our graduation rate jumped more than seven points last year, rising from 62.9% to over 70%! While we have hard work to do to meet our goal of at least 95% of our students graduating, it is clear that we are on the right track and gaining momentum.

It is gratifying to see our community working alongside us. When we invited you to share your thoughts and concerns in our first-ever ThoughtExchange, hundreds of you contributed to that online dialog. We are incorporating your ideas and input into our plans the future. Additionally, many of you are participating in other ways:
  • Serving on high school planning committees and working with us on plans that ensure equitable and challenging courses in all our high schools. 
  • Helping us develop a long range plan to address our building needs. The citizen-driven Capital Facilities Advisory Committee, co-chaired by two community members and a student, is meeting all year to work on this issue. The committee’s recommendations will help shape a future bond measure. 
  • Providing workplace learning experiences for our students. Our list of partners exceeds 400 people who care enough about our high school students to carve out time and share resources to help youth achieve bright futures. We are grateful for the businesses and organizations that provided our students with more than 900 real-world internships last year.
Graduating at least 19 out of 20 students is an ambitious goal, but with your help, we will achieve it. Your involvement really does make a difference, student by student.

I encourage you to be a part of Highline rising by becoming a career partner or volunteering in a school-- and by spreading the word about our amazing staff and students.

We are Highline!
