We shared information about seven topics in this family update.
The graduation rate for Highline Public Schools increased for the seventh straight year. The overall graduation rate for the Class of 2020 is 83.8 percent. The greatest increase came for Black/African American students, who graduated at the highest rate ever in Highline, at 88.7 percent. That is an increase of 12 percentage points over the previous year.
