Our mission: Preparing our students with skills and knowledge for success in college, career, and citizenship.
Welcome to the Puget Sound
Skills Center (PSSC). We pride ourselves on serving all students in our 18 college and
career preparation programs offered at PSSC. Our mission is to prepare each of
our attending students for their success in college, a meaningful career and
global citizenship. Our dedicated teaching and support staff strongly believe
in and support the PSSC mission by knowing each student by name, strength and
interest. We have strong relationships with our local businesses,
community groups, civic organizations and parents of our students to ensure we
are taking a collective approach for student success into and out of their
selected PSSC program focus. Please feel free to stop by and visit with us to
see how our teachers, support staff and administration team foster student’s
growth in preparing for their future endeavors.
The February 10 election yielded mixed results for Highline with passage of the education programs and operations levy and failure of the capital improvement bond. The School Board now must look for solutions to overcrowding and aging buildings.
Parents, community members, business owners, and staff are encouraged to nominate a Highline employee or volunteer for a Gold Star Award from the Highline Schools Foundation. This year's deadline is March 5.
The Highline Public Schools School Board invites community members, families, and staff to attend a work session on the district’s budget. Chief of Staff and Finance Duggan Harman will discuss the overall budget picture for next school year, including budget impacts related to the February bond failure.
