There are three types of transfer requests.
In-district Transfer Requests are submitted by Highline residents who wish to request that their student attend another school within Highline Public Schools other than their student’s neighborhood school.
Choice Transfer Release
Students wishing to leave Highline Public Schools to request attendance in a different school district must submit a Choice Transfer Request (CTR) release.
Non-Resident Student Choice Transfer Release
Students that live outside of Highline Public Schools boundaries are considered non-resident students. Those students wishing to request attendance to Highline Public Schools as a non-resident must request a Choice Transfer Request (CTR) release with their resident school district.

We offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme at Mount Rainier High School. Up to 15 seats per graduating year will be reserved for each of the high school service areas (Highline, Tyee and Evergreen). If more than 15 students apply from each service area, a lottery system will be implemented.
