We are thrilled to launch the new Highline website! Our new site is easier to navigate and accessible to users with disabilities. 

 Kids Eat Free All Summer

All Highline children can eat free breakfast, lunch and snacks during the summer through the federally-funded Summer Food Program. A child does not need to be a Highline student to participate.

Students in class

The 2017-18 school year is one to remember! We raised our graduation rate, passed a levy, broke new ground and did what we do best--graduate students prepared to choose their future. Look back at what we did together.

New High School Schedule in 2020

After a two year process of researching school schedule options and taking feedback from staff, students and families, we have arrived at a decision on a new high school course schedule. Highline will switch from a semester system with a six-period day to a trimester system with a five-period day, starting in fall 2020.

WELS creates a pathway for students to take control of their future as a Scholar and Leader in service to their community.
