Hello Rainier Beach Friends and Family!
Saturday School is an opportunity for all students to come and work on any late or missing work. If your student’s grades aren’t where you want them to be please encourage him or her to stop by and get caught up. We provide a quiet space to work and have tutors as well as RBHS staff available to help your child with any questions they may have. If your child is planning to come and needs specific help on a specific assignment. Have them check with their teacher to see if he or she is attending. Next Saturday School date March 15th. Thanks!
HSPE testing will occur on March 18th through March 20th. The schedule is posted here:
RBHS is hosting Scholarship Workshops in the RBHS Library Computer Lab! Students will receive support with their Dollars For Scholars Profile, WashBoard account, and individual scholarships we have posted up in the Career Center.

THE DEADLINE FOR 13TH YEAR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS HAS BEEN EXTENDED!
The 13th Year Promise Scholarship program provides all graduating seniors from Cleveland, Chief Sealth, International, and Rainier Beach High Schools with one year of FREE tuition at South Seattle Community College as well as support services to assist students during their transition from high school to college.
The free tuition is achieved through scholarships and financial aid. Students who are eligible to apply for financial aid are supported in completing the financial aid process as costs associated to college include more than just tuition but also textbooks, supplies, course fees, transportation, and living expenses.
In order to help students make the transition from high school to college, 13th Year offers free support services through their Readiness Academy workshops and 13th Year Bridge Program. These services help students enroll in college and prepare them for college life, including learning about college resources and meeting key staff and faculty at the college.
Students are eligible upon completion of program requirements and high school graduation. Please visit www.southseattle.edu/13th-year for specific program requirements.
