We expect all students to challenge themselves academically, creatively, physically, socially, and to take responsibility for their acitons. We will provide a safe, enriching, academic environment; assess each student's needs; and help students achieve their maximum potential.

As a graduate of Highline High School I am honored and delighted to be the Principal of this great learning community.

Highline High School is setting benchmarks in student achievement. Serving approximately 1250 students with very culturally rich backgrounds provides a setting for global awareness and acceptance. Our students are curious, creative, and have a vision for their future. Class of 2016 is setting out on the next leg of their lives with remarkable accomplishments. Two thirds of these young adults signed their College acceptance forms at a ceremony on campus in front of their younger peers setting the bar high for academic and social achievement. The community at large recognizes their potential and has rewarded them with a stake in those futures. This class was awarded over $630,000.00 in scholarships to include 2 full-ride scholarships. That is double the amount awarded last year. Some will be joining our military ranks. Some have accepted their first jobs and will be branching out from there.

Our 9th grade academy continues to be a great success, supporting students in passing all classes and staying on track for on-time graduation. Building on that success they can challenge themselves with rigorous learning opportunities. Highline offers Microsoft IT Certification, AP courses in Biology, World History, US History, Language Arts, Literature, Psychology, Spanish, Spanish for Native speakers, and Calculus. Classes in high demand at Highline include ceramics, Sports Medicine, business, engineering, photography, art, and drama. Highline is a place where English Language Learners and Special Education Students can find a full range of classes to meet them at their educational placement.

In addition to academics offered, Highline also offers many opportunities for students to meet new friends and share common interests. Clubs on campus include math club, LBGT, robotics, bike club, and more. We also have the full range of sports, to include football, baseball, swim, volleyball and more. There is an opportunity for every student to find extra-curricular activities.

We work hard to make Highline High School a rich and wonderful learning community where students and adults come together to do their best each day. Our Positive Behavior program promotes positivity, respect, persistence, responsibility, and staying engaged. Our behavior specialist works with staff and student in service of this goal. We will continue our school wide initiative to improve writing skills across all content areas. Hiring two academic tutors will continue our work to offer credit recovery, after school tutoring, Saturday school, and reassessment opportunities to help students graduate on time, prepared to choose their future.

We are stronger at Highline because of our parents and community partners who support our work. Our PTA remembers to celebrate staff each year with luncheons and dinners on conference nights. Our Latino Parent Community has built a strong voice on campus and work hard to understand systems and support their student’s success. Many agencies offer easy access to services by reaching out and seeing students on campus. NAVOS, Boys and Girls Club, ACRS (Asian Counseling Referral Services), HERO, College Access Now, and College Success Foundation are just a few of the many supports in place to encourage students to keep working through their challenges and to keep their eye on their futures.

At Highline staff is always ready if you have concerns or questions. And if you would like to stop by and talk with me, I welcome the chance to talk with you and share your goals for your student.

It is a Great Day to be a Pirate,

Vicki Fisher

  • Supporting Immigrant Students

    We recognize that actions taken by the White House, including a new executive order restricting immigration and orders to increase immigration enforcement, are unsettling to many of our families. We want to reiterate our commitment to our students’ safety. We will do everything in our power to keep our students safe at school.
