We Want to Learn About Careers

We are a group of volunteer citizens who believe in and support the Highline Public Schools: “To create a path to success for every student.” We are committed to gathering resources from our community and beyond, to support this cause.

Our Vision

We are a bridge to opportunity for Highline Public School students, and our work makes an impact on their success. We help the community and district fulfill their purpose: “That every student in Highline Public Schools is known by name, strength and need, and graduates ready for college, career and citizenship.”

Our Mission

We Believe:

  • In Highline Public School students’ strengths, abilities, and potential.
  • In the vision and goals of the Highline School District, as outlined in the Highline Public Schools Community Strategic Plan.
  • In developing sustainable funding resources to support Highline Public School students into the future.
  • In recognizing, respecting, and building relationships with our partners.
  • In the value of community and business partnerships—and our collective impact.

  • In working hard, having fun, and remaining invested in our students for the long term.
