About the Learning Program

Highline offers a standards-based educational program to all students. We begin with the end in mind; what should students know, understand, and be able to do. Then we draw upon a variety of curricular resources to meet the end goal. The foundation for curriculum and instruction at Highline Academy is based on the National Common Core Standards. These standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn and master at each grade level.
