Tukwila School District


The Tukwila School District in Washington state serves a diverse student population across 5 schools, including 3 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school. While the district as a whole faces significant challenges, with low academic performance compared to state averages, one school stands out as a bright spot: Tukwila Elementary.

Tukwila Elementary is the highest-performing school in the district, ranking 813 out of 1,169 elementary schools in Washington and outperforming the other district schools in English Language Arts and Math proficiency. In contrast, Foster Senior High School has a relatively low 4-year graduation rate of 83.8%, though it maintains a lower student-teacher ratio than the other high schools in the district.

Across the Tukwila School District, there are high rates of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a significant level of economic disadvantage. This, combined with the district's overall low performance on state assessments, suggests a need for targeted support and resources to ensure equitable educational outcomes for the diverse student population.
