Keeping Our Promise

Looking Forward & Remembering the Past

In this issue: Here are views of the future at Highline High School, photos of some of our aging facilities being considered for future school bonds and a fun look at snow-sprinkled (and blanketed) schools. Plus information about 6th grade moving to middle school--and some hello and goodbye events to anticipate this year.

Architects Reveal Final HHS Design

The new Highline High School (HHS) project is right on schedule. Bassetti Architects met with the Highline Pirates design review committee and community members to share the final building design and next steps this month.


See the timeline and more interior and exterior views of what HHS will look like.


CFAC Takes a Look

Community members spent a Saturday afternoon touring several of our older school buildings. We have too many older facilities to walk through in one day. We are grateful to have dedicated community members planning for the next school bond and beyond. Read more and see what they saw.


Old Schools, New Schools... Snowy Day Schools

Here are our two oldest schools still in use this year--and our two newest schools under construction--wearing their snow costumes.  


What Will Middle School Be Like?


Our middle school principals loved meeting hundreds of our current 5th- and 6th-grade families in January. Here is a summary of the information meetings for Cascade, Chinook, Glacier, Pacific and Sylvester middle schools. Learn what to expect and how we are getting ready for three grades in middle school!
