    Nice to see “growth” and “progress” in our local district, but if you take a close look at the actual scores of these schools, really Raisbeck is the only school that is really achieving at a high standard. The balance are making improvements over some pretty dismal scores…..but don’t get me wrong, that’s still a good thing.

    The bar is set close to the bottom in the first place, so ANY achievement would be an improvement.

    To bad the CHOICE Academy wasn’t mentioned. In my opinion they are the true shining star in the Highline Public School District. It is amazing what they have accomplished on a shoestring budget.
