Highline High School
With passage of the 2016 bond, we rebuilt Highline High School. School staff and community members helped plan and review the design. Take a virtual 360-degree tour, review HHS construction news updates and more progress photos below, from start to finish.
- Opened: September 2021
- Architect: Bassetti Architects
- General Contractor/Construction Manager: Skanska
"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.
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."
Several 2021 Highline High School grads are leading the charge to install solar panels on the roof of the new building!
Save the dates and RSVP for the Community Grand Opening Ceremony or the Alumni Reception. Both events are during Homecoming week in October and will offer tours of the new Highline High School.
