Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! It is always a joy for us to welcome new and returning students, staff and families to Highline. As we begin our year together, I want to share with you some of the exciting changes that are underway across the district.

Our schools and classrooms are buzzing again. The 2018-19 school year is officially underway. Students jumped into learning and collaborating. Teachers and staff are ready to motivate and inspire.
