Mount Rainier High School promotes the growth of every student and seeks to create principled, knowledgeable, and inquisitive graduates empowered to lead productive and caring lives in a global society.
Dear Mount Rainier Families,
Kyle Linman has been appointed as Mount Rainier principal, starting July 1. Kyle is currently principal at Sylvester Middle School, where he previously served ten years in the roles of dean and assistant principal. Before coming to Highline, Kyle taught eight years at the high school level in the Seattle area and in Los Angeles Unified School District.
Kyle earned his bachelor’s degree at Western Baptist (now Corbin University) in Salem, Oregon and his master’s in education administration from Central Washington University.
Kyle is an outstanding leader deeply committed to the staff and students with whom he works. He will work closely with MRHS staff to ensure a smooth transition next fall.
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.
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.
How do we prepare and engage students for 21st-century careers? We give them opportunities to explore computer science and technology through innovative courses and programming. And it all starts with just 60 minutes of an online introductory course in coding.
Highline voters will be asked to renew an educational programs and operations levy in February. Our school board voted on December 6 to place the levy on the ballot. The levy renews an expiring levy and funds needs not yet fully funded by the state.
