New Start High School Moving to Southern Heights Site for Fall 2023

New Start High School Moving to Southern Heights Site for Fall 2023

Dear New Start Families and Students,

Highline Public Schools is announcing some school moves for September 2023, which include New Start High School.

New Start High School will relocate to part of the former Southern Heights Elementary building to provide improved accommodations for New Start students and staff.

Highline Virtual Elementary and Highline Virtual Academy schools will relocate to space at the Southern Heights site, as well. The relocation of the two virtual schools from the Olympic site in Des Moines will create space at the Olympic site for Tyee High School students to attend school for two years during construction of a new Tyee.

Southern Heights Elementary School closed at the end of the 2021-22 school year due to shrinking enrollment. Southern Heights is in the best condition of the surplus district sites available for school relocation. This is an opportunity to improve classroom conditions for New Start students and staff. Some site upgrades will be made to Southern Heights to accommodate the three schools. The community garden at our current site will be able to continue serving neighbors and students with learning opportunities.

Please contact me with any questions you may have. The address of our school location in September will be 11249 14th Avenue South, Burien, WA 98168.
