Principal

  • Jacqueline Downey Evergreen High School Families and Community,
    We are thrilled to begin next school year as Evergreen High School. Staff, students, community, and families have spent the past year planning our school vision, mission, and strategies to provide an excellent education and high school experience for all of our students.

    Plans for the 2017-18 school year:

    Increased Partnership with our Families and Community:
    We seek to work closely with our families and community to provide our students with a quality education and an enriching, relevant high school experience. We will engage in monthly activities with families and the broader community, such as a Dia de Los Muertos Celebration and Arts Night. This past spring we established an EHS Community Advisory Board and aim to establish a parent/family organization to provide feedback to the school leadership team and coordinate volunteer opportunities.

    Restorative Practices & Student Voice: Students will partake in classroom meetings in advisory to celebrate one another’s achievements and problem solve concerns. Student representatives will serve on all major school committees. Both ASB officers and our Ignite 9th Grade Mentoring program will be classes during the day in order to increase student participation and intentional student leadership development.

    Individualized College & Career Planning: On the Evergreen campus we have greatly increased the opportunities for college and career exposure. Now we want to take a more individualized approach to ensure every student identifies their passion and develops a plan to pursue it in college/career. This will occur in advisory lessons and every student will have a college/career support person on campus, whether it is a staff member or a college access partner from the College Success Foundation, Trio, Upward Bound, or the University of Washington Dream Project.

    Standards Based Instruction: This year we will be focusing on alignment of units, assessments, and lessons across common courses to ensure all students at Evergreen receive a high quality education aligned to state and national standards. All teachers will partake in common instructional practices, such as posting a clear daily lesson learning target, agenda, and assessment of learning task.

    We are excited to build upon the great work started by small schools to provide an equitable education for every student. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us or visit our school. We look forward to working alongside you in the coming year!

    Sincerely, 

    Jacqueline Downey
    Principal
    Evergreen High School

  • 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.
