Student Voice: New Building Inspires Motivation to Learn

Student Voice: New Building Inspires Motivation to Learn

What is the value & impact of a new, modern school building?

"I think replacing the old building with a modern learning facility has definitely impacted students like myself in a positive way. The Promethean boards placed in every class and hallway wing is such a great technological touch."

"The new Highline High School building brings a whole new vibe that inspires a motivation to learn."

"My favorite feature is the advanced new look of the whole school. I love how everything is more open and friendly, like the classroom windows and the spacious hallways.

"I also enjoy the fact that the new building was able to keep bits and pieces of the old building, such as the pirate mural, the old gym floor circle on the new gym wall and the similar design of the front of the school building."

Anni's answer is the first in our 2022 Highline Bond series spotlighting student voices to explain the value and impact of a new, modern school building.

Highline High School was constructed with funding from the 2016 school construction bond.

In June, the Highline School Board placed the next-phase bond on November election ballots.
