  • Learning Focuses on Head and Heart

    How do we want our students to feel when they are at school? And why should we ask about feelings anyway? There is good reason. More and more research shows that students learn best when their social and emotional needs are addressed.

Superintendent

  • Superintendent I am proud that for the fourth consecutive year our graduation rate has risen in Highline. Guided by our community-driven strategic plan with its bold goals for students, our graduation rate has increased 16.5 percentage points since 2013, to 78.8 percent for the Class of 2017.

    Even better, all of our student groups have made gains, which means we are closing the achievement and opportunity gaps in Highline. This comes at a time when our students are taking more challenging high school coursework than ever before.

    Our rising graduation rate is the result of the hard work of our dedicated staff, the efforts of our students and the support of our families and community.

    Our teachers and staff are a truly committed team of professionals who are delivering every day on our promise of knowing every student by name, strength and need.

    Our students are demonstrating that they are capable of achieving at high levels and are motivated to do so.

    Our families are partnering with us to educate our students, and our community has stepped up to support us through the Graduate! Highline movement.

    It is a joy and a privilege to serve as your superintendent. Together we are Highline.
