Many students have spent time at refugee camps. Nearly 40% of the students face severe language barriers and more than 75% are from low income families. More than 11% of the students don’t have stable housing or are homeless.

Red Comet’s online program was one of the key components of Foster High School’s overall solution. At the district level, school board leaders directed resources to add supports like one-to-one computer devices at the high school which helped provide students access to Red Comet’s online curriculum.
Superintendent, Tukwila School District
We were so impressed with the success of Red Comet in Foster HS that in 2017, we decided to start an online school using Red Comet curriculum to cater to the needs of students across WA State
