Rogers High School Principal Lori Wyborney and Assistant Principal Marty Rubinette spoke at our club in June. They were highlighting the ways they have used grant money to raise the standard and expectations of students at their school. The median income in their neighborhood is $33,000 whereas across Washington, it is $62,000. 35% or their population has experienced complex trauma. 17 languages are spoken at Rogers HS. Another statistic, the number of suspensions in 2009 was 1800 but, in 2016 it was down to 430. They reportedly have 65% of the kids in a running start program and in 2016 53% went to college. 
 
The New York Times recently wrote a very complimentary article about them and the school's achievements in raising the bar, "Wyborney handed out graduation-rate statistics from around the district. Rogers had hit a high of 82 percent in 2016. But her enthusiasm was restrained. “Just stats to look at, my little love bugs,” she said. “We’ve got to figure out 18 percent of the kids.”
