Options High School
Bellingham, Washington
I am the principal of a small alternative high school in Bellingham Washington that supports around 130 students. We are a 23 year old semi-traditional alternative high school that used to exist in 7 portables in the middle of our small city. We currently are in the construction phase of a 21+ million dollar 52,000 sq ft building that we will open in August of 2017. Our design is truly innovative and has gleaned from the best PBL facility examples around the planet. In preparation for this exciting facility the staff at Options High School have been working hard to prepare a new culture of PBL readiness for when we open in 2017. We plan to transition to being a full PBL school and will engage our students in truly authentic learning opportunities in a way that no school in our county has.
On a personal note, there are three things that keep me centered and fuel my passions. The first is my family, the second is working with youth, and the third is riding motorcycles!
