Burien’s historic Highline High School – which first opened its doors in 1924 – is being slowly eaten away by demolition equipment and workers at its campus located at 225 South 152nd Street.

Cost of the demolition and reconstruction of the school is over $148 million dollars, with Skansa as the General Contractor/Construction Manager.

The new campus is projected to open in the fall of 2021. In the meantime, students are attending the temporary school at the Olympic Interim site.
