 I am happy to report that Chief Sealth International High School is a recipient of the 2013  Washington Achievement Award. CSIHS is being honored for HIGH PROGRESS.  Schools qualify for recognition if they are in the top 10% of schools making the most progress in the performance of the all student groups over the last three years.  OSPI calculates the progress score by combining the Achievement Score (average of proficiency rates in both reading and math) with the Improvement Score (average of improvement trends from year to year).  This is an extraordinary accomplishment and is a direct reflection of the hard work and the dedication of our teachers and students, and the support of our parents.

This award is well deserved.. In the past year(s), the staff at CSIHS have implemented several improvements that have impacted our students' success. We will continue to reflect on our practice and make the necessary changes to ensure that our students are learning.

The award for High Progress was presented to me at the OSPI statewide ceremony April 24th in Lacey.

It's a great day to be a Seahawk!!
