School Details

See school-by-school details, exceptions and change areas for the boundaries and feeder patterns that will go into effect fall 2019.

Exceptions & How We Will Communicate

Learn about exceptions to boundary changes and how we will communicate with families and staff. Find answers to frequently asked questions in our boundary change FAQs for families and staff.

Exceptions to Boundary Changes

We will enroll students in their neighborhood school(s) in fall 2019 unless they:

  1. Have an approved in-district transfer. In-district transfers continue through the highest grade of the requested school. In-district transfer approvals are based on transfer criteria priorities. 

  2. Are enrolled in a Dual Language program that is not available at their neighborhood school or space is not available in the program at their neighborhood school.

  3. Receive services from Special Education or Highly Capable (Challenge) program not available at their neighborhood school. See updated fall 2019 locations and feeder pattern for the Challenge program

  4. Receive services through the McKinney-Vento program for students experiencing homelessness.

  5. Receive services from the Washington State Department of Social and Human Services foster child program.

  6. Are in 12th grade in fall 2019. Students in 12th grade will continue at their current schools.

  7. Are enrolled in a school of choice, such as Big Picture (grade 6-12), CHOICE Academy (grades 6-12) or Raisbeck Aviation High School (grades 9-12). This exception includes students selected by lottery from Evergreen, Highline and Tyee service areas to enroll in the International Baccalaureate program at Mount Rainier High School.

For exceptions to boundary changes that are unique to your school, scroll to the list of school-by-school details below.

Letter to Families

Letters will be mailed the last week of November to Highline Public Schools families who have one or more students who will change schools for fall 2019. 

The letter will list new neighborhood school feeder patterns and exceptions.

For families with students in a dual language program, the letter includes specific information about the location of the dual language program for your student's grade level. Students will remain at their current school if dual language is not available at their grade level at the new neighborhood school. 

Helping Students Through the Transition

2019 will be a year of transition districtwide. Students throughout our district will be making transitions, either due to boundary changes or to the expansion of middle school to include sixth grade.

We understand boundary adjustments can be difficult for students who have to change schools. Children take cues from the adults who care about them. All of us--families and school staff--can ease the transition for students by being positive and expressing confidence in their ability to adapt to a new school.

Our staff will support students in this transition with a priority on strong relationships. Families are invited to visit their fall 2019 school(s) and get connected this year. 

Communication Plan

In addition to sending letters in late November 2018 to families impacted by boundary changes in 2019-20, information about boundary changes will be shared with families and community members districtwide. We will use email, notifications via mobile app, text messages, school website articles, eflyers, social media and press releases to local news blogs. 

We will continue to communicate with school staff so they can be informed and support families during this transition. We include regular updates in the weekly staff enewsletter and in a weekly packet of items sent to school administrators to share with staff.

High Schools

There are fewer changes to high school service areas compared to middle school or elementary school boundaries. With the exception of Hilltop Elementary, all the other elementary schools will feed into the same high schools in fall 2019 as they do now. A few boundary changes at the elementary level do affect the high school service area boundaries.

The biggest change for high schools is that students will be feeding from one, two or three middle schools rather than only one. With the addition of a fifth middle school (Glacier Middle School), we now have five middle schools feeding four high schools.
