Every year, the Highline Schools Foundation grants teachers the funds they need to support unique and innovative programs in their classrooms that their school’s budget can’t provide. We want to support activities and experiences that expand the learning process and actively engage students.
The Impact Grant was created to support an innovative program or learning opportunity in Highline Public Schools that encourages continuous improvement in education. (read more).

A gift to Highline Schools Foundation is something much bigger than one donation – it signifies that you believe in a future where all students reach their highest potential, where all teachers can provide enriched learning experiences and where all graduates are college or career ready – and that such a future is worth fighting for.
Project N.O.W. is a new program that supports Highline Public School students in need with a free backpack full of food to take home for the weekend—all school year. Many Highline students have little-to-no food at home, are poverty-stricken, and in some cases homeless or are in transitional housing. We invite businesses, organizations and individuals to support this critical program. Click HERE for more information about the program and on how you can help our most vulnerable students.
