RAISBECK AVIATION HIGH SCHOOL Application Information

Class of 2019

VERSIÓN EN ESPAÑOLA DISPONIBLE



FIRST STEP INFORMATION GATHERING
Before you proceed with your application, please read this information to be absolutely sure that Raisbeck Aviation High

School is the right choice for you!
RAHS is a small learning community with approximately105 students per grade level. Our students come from around the Puget Sound region and beyond. We are looking for students who are passionate about aviation and flight, aerospace and space exploration, and related technical fields. Students who are interested in engineering (mechanical, electrical, aerospace, robotics, systems, civil), the sciences (computer, astrophysics, space), and technology-and innovation-driven fields fit well in our school. Students who are motivated to pursue a science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) education and career pathway related to aviation and aerospace are ideal candidates.

Note: Since we offer a specialized, theme-based, and college-preparatory curriculum, we are not a school that is designed for everyone. Plan on working hard and plan on working on aviation and aerospace-related topics. If your passions lean more toward the arts, health sciences, etc., we encourage you to select a school that will help you more directly reach your goals.
If you are excited about coming to Raisbeck Aviation High School and think RAHS might be for you, continue to gather more information. We recommend the following:


  1. Learn about the vision and mission of RAHS, our instructional program, student activities, school culture, and our history. Additional Information is available on our website at http://www.highlineschools.org/raisbeckaviation

2. Attend an evening information program with your parents / guardians. Programs are scheduled for



November 13 and December 4, 2014. Information programs run from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
3. Investigate your options for high schools.

o Within Highline Public Schools, students can choose from a number of schools and small learning communities designed to meet a wide range of student needs and interests.

o If you reside outside of the Highline School District, you may find that your resident district has options other than attending your neighborhood or assigned school.

o There are additional regional options—schools for the arts, health & medical careers, trades, etc.


4. When you have completed your research about high school options, make a list of the positive aspects of each school as well as potential challenges. What is most compelling to you? Are you willing to commit to the requirements associated with attending your school of choice? Talking with your parents, school counselor and teachers should help you evaluate your options and determine the best choice.
Often, a parent shares that Raisbeck Aviation High School is a school they wish they could have attended.

While your parents need to be fully supportive of your choice to attend RAHS—or any other high school—they will not be the student. Your high school years provide the foundation for college and career success. If you choose a learning environment that “speaks to you”—academically, socially, and emotionally—success will follow.
