New class replaces Senior Seminar for Everett School District high school students

To give students the time, space, tools and place to develop necessary skills, the district is replacing Senior Seminar and its Culminating Exhibition with College and Career Readiness Seminar.

In an effort to better prepare graduates for life after high school, the Everett School District is changing the curriculum.

The “Senior Seminar” and “Culminating Exhibition” now required in senior year will be replaced with a “College and Career Readiness Seminar,” which can be taken in either the junior or senior years.

Jackson High School’s Leah Shin is one of Washington’s top youth volunteers

Lea Shin received one of the two 2015 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards in Washington State.

When told she was one of just two students in Washington to win the 2015 Prudential Spirit of Community Award all Shin could think of was others, “… the immense support I received from my family, the Literacy for Love team, Henry M. Jackson High School, the University of Washington Foster School of Business: Young Executives of Color Program, and most importantly the entire Mill Creek/Bothell community.”
