Get ready for an adventure! We're excited to invite your 8th grader to the 8th Grade Experience with UW, a fun and informative event about college exploration. This special day is a partnership with the University of Washington Seattle. It will be on December 12 for Chinook, Pacific and Sylvester students and December 13 for Cascade, Glacier, Highline Virtual Academy, Big Picture and Choice students.
Shape your tomorrow by choosing your path for the 2024-25 school year today. Save the date for an upcoming school-specific information session to learn more about schools and programs you can apply to. Students entering high school can also get a taste of their options at a High School Transitions Event on December 13.
Plan life after high school at this fun event. COLLEGECON is custom-made for families with students in grades 9 through 12. Seventh- and 8th-grade students with the College Bound Scholarship are also invited! Enjoy free transportation, meals and childcare.
Standards-Based Grading (SBG) is the new instructional approach we are using across Highline. SBG measures your student's progress toward the learning goals for their grade. We want to share how this will be displayed in the gradebook for middle and high school students.

We are excited to share that Fred Butts has been selected as the new principal at Big Picture Schools for the 2023-24 school year.
Big Picture School Principal Jeff Petty has announced that he will be leaving Highline at the end of this school year. We thank Jeff for his service to students and families at Big Picture for the past three years. Big Picture students, families, and staff are asked for input to assist in identifying the next principal.
Do you have what you need to understand your student's grades and learning? We are seeking feedback from families of middle and high school students. Take 60 seconds to answer seven questions about your student's learning.
Big Picture Schools uses internships, apprenticeships and rigorous, interest-based projects to immerse students in work they are passionate about to develop the skills, habits and knowledge to succeed in higher education, overcome obstacles to their wellbeing, and contribute positively to their communities.
