Pirates Visit Their New Ship & Save the Dates to Celebrate!

HHS Teachers Tour New School

"Wow, it's beautiful!" was the phrase on repeat this week as Highline High School staff toured their new school inside and out. We take you along with one of the tour groups, including Principal Clint Sallee, to see what 85% complete looks like. See the tour photos below.

Then, fly over Highline with teacher Jeb Binns and his drone to get an aerial view of the new school and campus. 

Save the Date!

Almost 100 years after Highline High School opened its doors in 1924, this September students and staff will start the school year in a brand new building. Join us to celebrate the grand reopening of HHS in a state-of-the-art learning facility at one of these events during Homecoming Week:

  • Community Grand Opening Ceremony & Tours | Thursday, October 21, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
  • Alumni Reception & Tours | Friday, October 22, 3:00-5:00 p.m.
