"The design of the new school makes me feel special, like we earned the school."
We built the school projects you approved in the 2016 bond to support more of our students with modern learning environments. In Fall 2019, we completed the new, larger Des Moines Elementary School at the Zenith Site and a fifth middle school—Glacier Middle School—in SeaTac. We renovated the Olympic Site as an interim school. We opened an all-new Highline High School in Fall 2021. New facilities and upgraded security features improved safety in every school. Design work for new schools at Evergreen, Tyee and Pacific will speed future bond progress. The School Board placed the next school bond on Highline election ballots for November 8, 2022.
“Safety-wise this school is a lot better than the old Highline High School. With automatically locking classroom doors, it was even hard to pull a senior prank."
Tyee alumni from across the decades gathered with staff, students and community partners to mark the transition from Totems to Titans.
"My favorite places at the new high school are the music practice rooms."
"I think school should be a fun, safe, clean place, because we spend a good chunk of our day here, from six to eight hours, and as an athlete, I spend up to 10 hours here some days. Kids should want to come to school and be proud of what their school looks like."
Help us retire the Tyee Totem mascot and introduce the Titan mascot in a ceremony. Tour the campus, see the design plans for constructing a new school and learn about the November school construction bond on local ballots.
