Mission

Principal

  • Roberta McFarland Waskowitz Outdoor School Programs are a magical journey of discovery exploring the diversity of people and nature!  For over 68 years Waskowitz has been welcoming classes from throughout the Puget Sound region to investigate the beauty of the Pacific Northwest through classes in forest and river ecology as well as forming bonds with new friends from different school.  

    Waskowitz supports and enhances the learning of the classroom through all the senses.  These hands on-minds on lessons encourage curiosity and an affinity for our natural world.  Whether elementary, middle school or high school students, all students learn about themselves and their place in our communities.

    I look forward to working and learning with all that enter through the Waskowitz gates--from our weekly school groups, high school retreats to the WELS and WELS –PS students!   Come experience the Magic of Waskowitz!

  • Why Run a Levy? Hear From a Student

    There is a gap between what the state funds and the education Highline provides to students. Levy funds make up the difference. Mount Rainier High School student Cassidy Huff explains why we have the bond measure on the ballot and what it will fund.

  • Share Feedback on Later Start Times

    We are making plans to change to a later start time for high schools. This is in response to feedback from students, families and staff, as well as research that shows teenagers do better in school when they can sleep later.
