I was offered teaching position in Highline County. Currently I teach in NYC and can afford to live here. Besides, I hate NYC. I have family and NYC is not good place to raise one. I want to move out of here and Washington State sounds tempting.
I’m looking for family oriented, not so expensive housing with good schools for my 13 years old son. Good ice hockey programs for my son (he is pretty good).
Also what are teachers making in the area?
Suggestions anyone?

Do you mean the Highline School district or Highline Community College? (Because there is no Highline County in WA)....The Highline School District and college are in Burien, WA, which is on Puget Sound, and has less expensive housing than both Seattle and NYC.Don't know about ice hockey in the schools, and have heard not so great things about the Highline school district, but have heard good things about neighboring Des Moines.

thanks,
I meant Highline School district. Hockey does not have to be in the school and that is secondary importance in the whole idea.
Any good schools for 13 years old in the area?

In those areas south of Seattle, Maple Valley and Kent are supposed to have great schools..Kent especially at the high school level. In Burien, where the Highline district is, Sylvester Middle School is considered pretty good. And John F Kennedy High school is a well regarded private school in Burien.

I've heard mixed things about Highline... When I lived in Seatac, all I can remember is the gun incident where a student was caught with UZI in his backpack because he received death threats from other students (probably gang related). Then I've heard from others it's not that bad.

My wife's cousin lives in that area and he has six kids (all under 10 though). I'll have to ask him next time I get the opportunity.

I don't think hockey is big in Seattle though. Probably because we rarely have any ice to skate on outside of a indoor rink.

I seem to remember previous threads about parents asking about youth hockey programs in the south county area. I did a quick search and came up with these two but I think there were more. If you have time, search our forum a bit ...you might find other threads:
