Integrus Architecture staff resumed meeting with community members, staff and students from Tyee High School in November. The Tyee design review committee provided input and feedback to the architects as they draft design plans for a new high school building.
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 improve safety in every school. Design work for new schools at Evergreen, Tyee and Pacific will speed future bond progress.
Our community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC) added some new members, chosen by lottery, and met on Zoom in October.
"Impressive." "So much light and wood." "It's beautiful." "It feels like a college student union building." These are comments we heard during the self-guided tours of the new Highline High School, offered on October 22 and 23 after the grand opening events were postponed. Approximately 300 alumni and community members walked through the new school. See photos.
Highline Public Schools leaders made the difficult decision to postpone the Highline High School Community Grand Opening and Alumni Reception events planned for October 21 and 22.
Now you can register for limited-capacity, self-guided tours available on October 22 and 23.
We welcome seven new lottery members to our community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC).
From bow to stern, the new Highline High School is drawing Pirate praise. "It's gorgeous. And that's an understatement," says Scott Logan, district chief of operations. “We’ve been flooded with positive early reactions from staff, students, community and alumni to the beautiful rebuild of a school with nearly 100 years of history, delivered on time and within budget."
