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.
A series of community meetings are scheduled over the next few months with Superintendent Susan Enfield and School Board members. Families and community members are invited to participate in the meetings which will take place at schools across the district.
The Highline Schools Foundation announced the winners of the 2015 Gold Star Awards for outstanding teacher, administrator, professional staff, volunteer, alumnus, and rookie teacher of the year at the Gold Star Awards BASH on March 19.
Four applications were submitted for the open Director District 3 position on the Highline School Board. The School Board solicited candidates to fill the vacant position after the retirement of longtime School Board member Susan Goding.
The path to our student's big dreams starts with high learning expectations. Highline students are taking a new state assessment this year. Watch a recently released video that shows how the new assessment is used as a teaching tool to measures student progress toward college and career readiness.
The results of a recently completed, state-required evaluation show 13 schools funded with 2002 and 2006 bonds exceed standards for buildings of their age laid out by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).
