Highlights & Plans

Highlights for 2018-19

  • Our Class of 2019 significantly outperformed any other graduating class in school history in terms of scholarship dollars accumulation, bringing in a combined total of 1.3 million dollars’ worth of scholarships and counting; and by our preliminary graduation rate estimate indicates that the Class of 2019 will be the highest on record for the Tyee campus.
  • Hosted a highly attended Open House, Winter Break Success Night, and Spring Break Success Night. These serve as a model of family engagement and empowerment for the district--featured in the district catalogue as exemplars.
  • Continued collaboration with robust Tyee Alumni booster club “Friends of Tyee” to bring new mentors and resources to the campus.
  • Continued expansion of dual-credit offerings, including the addition of AP Calculus this year.
  • Continued to have a very low rate of out-of-school suspensions/expulsions as compared with peer schools in the region.
  • Added wrestling in 2018-19 and continued robust athletic offerings. Our athletic director was named SPSL Athletic Director of the Year.
  • Significant increase in average daily attendance rate versus 2017-18. We are now among the top performing high schools in Highline Public Schools at 88 percent. 

Plans for 2019-20

  •  
  • Add several exciting new course offerings, including Heritage Somali, Trades Academy, and College in the High School Precalculus.

Invitation to Participate

At Highline Public Schools, one of our four pillars in the district's strategic plan is parent and family engagement. In order to reach our strategic plan goals we will form partnerships with parents and families. Families and community members are encouraged to participate in school activities and in educating students in school, at home and in the community.
