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.
Free breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be served to children during the summer at several Highline schools through a federally-funded anti-hunger program. Eight Highline schools will join five community organizations to serve children living in South King County.
A school construction bond to repair or replace deteriorating schools and ease overcrowding will go before voters on November 4, 2014. The School Board passed a resolution at its June 4 meeting to place the bond measure on the ballot.
The vast majority of Highline Public Schools staff supports the district’s strategic plan but most say they need additional resources to help students reach the bold goals outlined in the plan. Those are two of the take-aways from the 2014 staff climate survey.
We face two critical issues as a school district: aging buildings and crowded schools. We're working on a solution, but want the community's input as we work to solve these challenges. Help us build for tomorrow, today.
Highline Public Schools has a new video that illustrates our bold goals for students. The animated five-minute video follows a family on Highline's "path to success," telling the story without a single word.
