High Schools in Tukwila School District


The Tukwila School District has only one high school, Foster Senior High School, which serves students in grades 9-12. The school has a diverse student population, with a majority of students coming from low-income families and underperforming on state academic assessments compared to the state average.

Foster Senior High School's student body is 36% Hispanic, 24.54% Asian, 19.56% African American, and 8.22% White, with smaller percentages of other racial/ethnic groups. The school's proficiency rates on the SBAC/English Language Arts, SBAC/Math, and WCAS/Science tests are all below the state averages, with particularly low performance in math and science. Additionally, the school has a high dropout rate of 10.4% and a four-year graduation rate of 83.8%, which, while not exceptionally low, indicates room for improvement.

Despite the school's relatively high per-student spending of $20,996 and a student-teacher ratio of 20.5 to 1, the academic performance data suggests that the resources may not be effectively utilized or targeted to address the specific needs of the diverse and economically disadvantaged student population. The Tukwila School District and Foster Senior High School will need to closely examine their academic programs, support systems, and resource allocation to improve student outcomes and ensure all students have the opportunities they need to succeed.
