Five Highline Schools Recognized

Five Highline Schools Recognized

The State Board of Education (SBE) has re-imagined school recognition to honor schools that have received support and are thriving and to highlight positive school systems changes happening all over the state. The Washington School Recognition Program is based on state-level and local information. 

CHOICE Academy, Raisbeck Aviation High School, Pacific Middle School, and Midway and McMicken Heights elementary schools are being honored.

Schools are recognized for either:

  • Closing Gaps: These schools are closing opportunity gaps for specific student groups, (e.g. Hispanic students) and making systems changes to improve outcomes for all students;
  • Growth: Schools recognized for growth show progress one year to the next; or
  • Achievement: Schools recognized for high achievement show high performance in many measures. Measures include English language arts (ELA) and math state test scores and graduation rates.
