My Highline Story.
Initial election returns are in. Proposition 1: Highline Schools Bond is passing! Read the letter from Superintendent Duran.
One of Highline Public School’s electric school buses starred as backdrop to remarks about investments in clean school buses by the vice president of the United States at Lumen Field on October 26. Six seniors from the HHS Environmental Club rode another one of our electric buses in the motorcade and had a chance to meet Vice President Harris and others.
It’s the final countdown to Election Day on November 8. Please join the effort to ensure Highline voters return their ballots and get informed about candidates and ballot measures. One more virtual bond community meeting + links to lots of voting information....
In addition to comprehensive neighborhood schools which offer challenging coursework with electives to enhance students’ learning experience, Highline also offers Choice Schools, a variety of alternative program options for middle and high school students, each with their own specialized focus to meet student interest and need. There is also a virtual school for elementary students.
In November, the Highline community will be asked to vote on a bond measure that will continue our commitment to replace our aging school buildings with safe, modern learning facilities. Watch this video to learn more about the November bond and to see how a new school building can impact students and their learning.
School meals today look a lot different than they did when many of us attended school. Our school kitchen staff prioritize local ingredients and scratch cooking when possible. And, they work hard to create recipes that reflect the many cultures our students represent.
Explaining the cost of the bond can be tricky. Here are two things you need to know about what homeowners will pay for Proposition 1: the Highline Schools Bond on November 8 ballots.
We welcome nine new members to our community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC).
Each year, families are required to verify student emergency information and submit updated health information. This ensures we have a current home address, phone number, emergency contact and health information on file. All of these items help us keep students safe while at school.
We have a few open seats on our community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC). Add your name to the lottery by Monday, September 26 at 9:00 a.m. if you live in Highline and are serious about helping prioritize 10 older schools for future bonds.

We want you to be ready for the start of the school year. Here are nine things to do as you get ready for the first day of school.
"The design of the new school makes me feel special, like we earned the school."
“Safety-wise this school is a lot better than the old Highline High School. With automatically locking classroom doors, it was even hard to pull a senior prank."
"My favorite places at the new high school are the music practice rooms."
It is a great honor to begin my role as your new superintendent. The opportunity to serve Highline’s students, staff, families, and community is a source of great joy, excitement, and optimism. Thank you again to our school board for its confidence in my leadership. I am also extremely grateful for the tremendous legacy of excellence created by the school board, Dr. Enfield, and the district’s leadership, educators, staff, and community.
