A big congratulations to Simon Struthers from Federal Way High School who won first place in the word processing category at the national Future Business Leaders of America competition.

Simon, please join us at the front to be recognized.

This effort is in direct support of the district Strategic Plan Goal 3, Active Learners: Engaged, Empowered, Critical Thinkers. Congratulations!

FWPS Scholars Earn Seal of Biliteracy

The Seal of Biliteracy recognizes high school graduates who have demonstrated high levels of proficiency (reading, writing, and speaking) in one or more languages in addition to demonstrating high levels of proficiency in English. The Seal of Biliteracy is important for Federal Way Public School scholars because it recognizes the valuable skills our scholars will bring into their career and college experiences.
