Counseling Center



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


  • Dear Highline Pirates Community,

    As we embark on the new school-year, Highline High School recognizes that relationships are key to ensuring our students have a successful learning experience.  Over the summer, we have partnered with students, families, staff and community members, hosting four community meetings on, June 15th, 27th, August 10th and August 24.  These sessions were designed to listen to stakeholders in the community and collaborate in identifying specific actions we can take to ensure that every student in our school is accepted, safe, and celebrated. 


    In three of the sessions participants were invited to review community feedback, identify common threads, categorize ideas, prioritize a focus and begin action planning.  The draft action plans will be the initial documents used by a team of stakeholders to continue to strengthen our campus culture and community.  We are currently in the process of identifying members of the stakeholder team.  If you have an interest in participating, please send an email to Vicki Fisher at vicki.fisher@highlineschools.org.


    As we begin the 2017-18 school year, we are already taking action based on community feedback.  We have redesigned and purposed advisories to include a focus on social and emotional learning, positive behavior instruction, academic success, and an ongoing and open dialogue between students and school administrators. During the first week of school, advisory classes will be extended in order for our students to identify core values and develop class charters. This work will support our school-wide efforts to build the individual and collective capacity to treat each other with respect and empathy throughout the year. 


    We have had strong participation from many community members who have taken time to come together to support a positive movement towards a stronger, unified, and equitable Highline.  We are grateful for each and every person who has contributed to the work thus far and look forward to a growing partnership in the months and years to come.  If you have questions, concerns or comments, please reach out to us at Highline High School. We want all voices to be heard in the process of building a safe learning environment for every student.

    Respectfully yours, 


    Vicki Fisher, Principal
