    District is requesting that our students complete transportation request forms by the end of this school year so they can determine stop times and schedules over the summer. The incoming class of freshmen has already completed the process. Please use this form and return to Ms. McEwen at Susan.McEwen@highlineschools.org.

Mission

MISSION: To prepare all students for college, career and citizenship through a personalized, rigorous and relevant learning experience that is facilitated in the context of aviation and aerospace.

Principal

Bruce Kelly From the desk of Principal/CEO, Bruce Kelly—

My appointment as the Principal to Raisbeck Aviation High School is a professional honor. After serving for three years as the Assistant Principal, I am thrilled to build upon the legacy championed by our own amazing visionary, Ms. Reba Gilman.

With any leadership transition, change is inevitable. However, my commitment to each stakeholder is to carry the torch of our mission and guiding principles forward. RAHS remains focused on addressing the critical gaps in the aerospace workforce and being responsive to industry needs.

Keeping our distinction as a Lighthouse model of STEM excellence and building upon the vibrant partnership with The Museum of Flight is important. With that backdrop, I think it is helpful to briefly touch on the next school initiative, replication. Simply put, replication means RAHS is positioned to export our signature programs or the entire school model across the region, state, and nation. It is noted that we began last year by exporting elements of our career readiness program to the Highline School District. That’s a great start. Looking ahead, I see remarkable opportunities tied to our model of Project Based Learning and showcasing our school-museum partnership. I think you would agree that replication represents a very robust initiative.

RAHS shines as a remarkable institution for teaching and learning. On any given day, our students, staff, industry and community supporters, PTSA, and alumni create a culture that was best described by Dr. James Raisbeck. After a recent visit, he quipped, “RAHS is a continual pep rally of learning.” I now consider his phrase as my second favorite motto—just below “The Sky is Not the Limit!”

This fall, RAHS celebrates the 10th anniversary of sharing that motto—hooray for us! In that same vein, I have the personal privilege and professional honor to lead and extend our legacy. I am excited to launch the next decade with you and want to thank you in advance for cheering me on.

My best,

Bruce Kelly
