Starting in the fall of 2012, the Highline community came together to develop a four-year strategic plan outlining

the community’s bold goals and big dreams for its children. 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.

The instructional vision articulated in the plan is organized around Four Pillars that guide professional and

tune their craft and grow in their profession.
