6th Grade in Middle School

6th grade moves up to middle school September 2019.

Highline's middle schools now serve 6th, 7th and 8th grade students, the most common middle school configuration in our state and nation. The opening of Glacier Middle School in SeaTac in fall 2019 provides capacity in our middle schools to add 6th grade.

In middle school, students have opportunities for higher level coursework, electives, arts, athletics and extracurricular activities they do not have in elementary school. With three years in middle school, students develop stronger relationships with their teachers and staff, in keeping with our promise to know every student by name, strength and need. Placing 6th grade in middle school supports our goals for students outlined in our strategic plan.
