• Our goal: T-2-4

    Preparing students to successfully complete some form of higher education: technical, 2-year or 4-year.               

    Spokane Public Schools believes that a great school system:

    *builds on the strengths and gifts of each child,
    *provides students from poverty the same opportunities for success after high school as students from non-poverty homes,
    *instills in every student the belief that they can achieve more than they think possible, and
    *assures that every adult in the system is committed to the successful completion of some form of higher education for every child.

    We have moved the finish line past graduation to help ensure our students are ready, that they get in, and then make it through their choice of higher education.

    Earning a post-secondary credential (certificate, degree, industry certification) will be vital for our students to meet the labor needs of the future and earn a living wage.

    *The Military is a wonderful option for students to learn valuable technical skills and access to the G.I. Bill for future educational pursuits after active service depending on the student's future career plans.
