Nearly a decade ago, Highline launched an innovative program for students to master two languages in school. The Dual Language program transformed the school day for dozens of children, who spend half their day learning in English and half their day learning in Spanish.
Cascade creates responsible, lifelong learners in a safe and respectful environment where all are inspired to excel, value their community, and celebrate diversity.

Please welcome Daniel Calderon to Cascade and lookout for a message from him in August.
Highline's proposed budget for the 2017-18 school is now posted online. The budget will be introduced to the Highline School Board at its July 26 meeting. You are invited to comment on the budget at a public hearing at 5:00 p.m. immediately before the school board meeting.
