The plan’s promise is that every student in Highline Public Schools is known by name, strength, and need, and graduates prepared for college, career, and citizenship. The collective commitment embodied in the plan is grounded in the community’s deep belief that Highline students are capable of reaching the plan’s ambitious goals and is driven by students’ aspirations for their future.
