Nearly a decade ago, Highline launched an innovative program for students to master two languages in school. The Dual Language program transformed the school day for dozens of children, who spend half their day learning in English and half their day learning in Spanish.
Cascade creates responsible, lifelong learners in a safe and respectful environment where all are inspired to excel, value their community, and celebrate diversity.

Dear Cascade Families,

He has a B.A. in International Studies from Macalester College and a Master’s in Education with a focus on Leadership and Policy from the University of Washington. Daniel is finishing his second year as founding assistant principal of Destiny Middle School in Tacoma.
Please welcome Daniel Calderon to Cascade and lookout for a message from him in August.
We are launching an online conversation to get your input on how to support the social and emotional well-being of students. Your ideas will be used as we renew our strategic plan, which will guide our work in schools for the next five years.
Four years, 11 students, countless challenges and one big, bold goal are at the center of a new documentary set in Highline Public Schools. "Eleven Paths" follows 11 Highline students from freshman through senior year of high school. You can view this compelling film and a Q & A panel with the students featured in it online.
The Highline School Board and Superintendent Susan Enfield are sending a clear and strong message of protection and reassurance to all students and families in the district. Read the letter to families. A similar message was sent to all staff.
We're back! Classrooms are buzzing with excitement as the 2017-18 school year officially kicks off. Our schools are full of students eager to learn and grow. Our teachers and staff are ready to inspire, motivate and educate!
