At Global Connections High School we are World Citizens who pledge to relentlessly engage in meaningful relationships, individualized equitable instruction, and powerful curriculum to strengthen our identity and voice, Uplift our communities, and Thrive in the world!


  • Nicole Fitch Welcome Global Connection High School Students, Parents, Guardians, and Families!

    It is an honor to welcome you to Global Connections for the 2016-2017 school year. Our talented staff are prepared to support your rigorous academic needs throughout the months ahead as your child prepares for graduation.  Last school year we saw a gain in the graduation rate for our school, and we are committed to providing opportunities for students to catch up and get on track so they can graduate with their peers. See your student's Counselor for more details and support.

    At Global Connections High School, we continue to strengthen our community by building positive relationships through our advisory Connections program, our PBIS strategies, and a vast array of sports, after school clubs, and activities. We also have nearly twenty community partnerships who provide resources and acceleration opportunities for our students. Even with all of this help, we can’t do it without you, our families. I’d like to personally invite you to become a volunteer by contacting our front office and joining our students and staff during lunch or dismissal on the days that work for you. Please reach out to us to volunteer, ask questions, or express concerns by calling the Tyee campus main office phone line at 206.631.6400.

  • Learn About School Schedule Decisions

    Making a decision about weather-related school closures is always difficult, because so many different situations have to be considered. We do our very best to balance the many interests at stake, but we recognize that no matter what decision we make, it will not please everyone.
