Despite strict work requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic, construction progress continues at the Highline High School site, thanks to construction workers.

The new school is expected to open in September 2021.

TENNIS COURTS MOVED TO SUNNYDALE SITE

As part of the new Highline High School replacement project, six new tennis courts are being built on part of the Sunnydale site grounds.

Architects and district staff had to get creative with where to build tennis courts when designing the new high school within the tight constraints of the existing site.

Here’s the bonus to the construction of tennis courts at the nearby Sunnydale site: we expect the new tennis courts to be completed this summer and available for the 2020-21 tennis season. A small bathroom building is included in the project.

The existing large play toy in Sunnydale remains in place, along with the ball diamond on the south side of the Sunnydale field. The tennis courts are on the north side of the Sunnydale course. The new courts are located off South 156th Street and across from the Moshier Park grounds.

A new pedestrian light was installed by the City of Burien at the south 156th Street exit of HHS and Moshier Field. After the new Highline High School opens in the fall of 2021, student-athletes accessing the new tennis courts will use the crosswalk and traffic lights.
