Highline's Highly Capable identification process will begin in winter 2024. For more information, please see the student identification page.
The goal for students who receive Highly Capable services is to meet each student's individual needs and capabilities and help students cultivate habits of learning that will contribute to student success in school, college, career and life.
Highline Public Schools is committed to culturally responsive and inclusive practices. Highly Capable services align with the mission that each of our students are unique in how they learn and by embracing learner variability as an asset that adds value to our classroom communities.
