At Everett Public Schools we believe every student has the ability to earn their high school diploma, and each one deserves the opportunity to do so.
Working with school staff across the district, the On-time Graduation and College and Career Readiness department is committed to helping every student graduate from high school, ready for college and a career, with the tools and skills needed to be successful in the 21st century.
Extra help and resources, along with interventions when necessary, are used by staff district-wide to help keep students engaged in learning and on-track to graduate. These extra measures are part of the reason Everett Public Schools' already high graduation rates continue to increase each year.
Traditional high school is not for everyone. Many students find they are unsuccessful in comprehensive high schools for a variety of reasons, which can often lead them to feel defeated or give up on school altogether. Luckily, there are plenty of other ways for students to earn their diploma, some without even setting foot inside a traditional classroom.
On this site you will find plenty of resources and programs that allow students to earn their high school diploma in non-traditional ways. These programs include both in-district and out-of-district options and range from community colleges, such as Everett, Edmonds, Shoreline, and Lake Washington, to a wide variety of online options, and even include opportunities to receive job or military training simultaneously!
"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed is always
to try just one more time.”
