Vashon High School has been recognized as being in the top 5% of all comprehensive high schools in the state for 2013, as well as demonstrating 'High Progress' for serving low income students over a 3 year period. This award belongs to all of us! We are one of 26 high schools to receive the 'Overall Excellence' award across the state and one of only 6 to have both Overall Excellence and High Progress, an important combination.
Our overall academic achievement, low income achievement, improvement and achievement vs peers were compared over two years using the Washington Achievement Index. We additionally had to have a narrow 'achievement gap' to qualify, meaning the gap between our at risk students and high achieving students could not be too big. Our student's success not only reflects the quality of practice at VHS, but also at McM and CES as we are simply the last destination for our learners.
Congratulations to our students, parents, and school staff for this wonderful accomplishment!
