Based on public health recommendations, we intend to continue phasing in students to in-person learning on March 1. We are asking families with students in PreK-5 or our IAC program (K-12) to commit to hybrid or fully remote instruction by January 29. To do so, please fill out the commitment form below for each of your students in PreK-5 or our IAC program (K-12). If your student is in an IAC program in K-5th grade, please fill out the elementary form.
Back to school since November, small groups of K-12 students with special needs are thriving in our Integrated Learning Center (ILC) and Community Based Services (CBS) programs. These photos and stories showcase the joy, learning and challenges of students and special education staff in our ILC and CBS classrooms.
There is only one more week to apply to our secondary schools of choice. The application will close at 11:00 p.m. on January 31.
Students have a lot of options when it comes to middle and high school--either their neighborhood school or a school of choice. Secondary schools of choice include Big Picture, CHOICE Academy, Raisbeck Aviation High School, the new Maritime High School and the Highline Virtual Academy as well as the International Baccalaureate (IB) program at Mount Rainier High School.
Highline Virtual Academy is launching this fall for students in 6th through 12th grade. Students who thrive in independent and online learning will benefit from attending the Highline Virtual Academy. Flexibility and self-pace are two important components of the academy’s learning model.
