Highly Capable Programs

  • Mission
    The goal of Highline's Highly Capable Program is to provide opportunities for students to achieve a greater depth of knowledge, and in some cases, to accelerate their learning to reach their full potential as scholars. Please see our Highly Capable Annual Plan, 2017-18
    Overview of Highly Capable Services

    In Washington State,  Highly Capable students are defined as "…students who perform or who show potential for performing at significantly advanced academic levels when compared with others of their age, experiences, or environments". Outstanding abilities are often observed in academic performance, creativity, and general intellect [OSPI-http://www.k12.wa.us/HighlyCapable/default.aspx].

    Highline School District offers a variety of programs and models for students identified as eligible for highly capable services at no cost to families. These models vary across grade levels in order to meet the changing needs of students. Please see the links below for more information about our student identification processes and program offerings.
