DR. SUSAN ENFIELD
HIGHLINE PUBLIC SCHOOLS (WA)
Knowing every student by name, strength and need is the promise of Highline Public Schools. Under the leadership of Superintendent Susan Enfield, the district is implementing a bold, four-year strategic plan that calls for at least 19 out of 20 students being proficient by third grade, passing Algebra by ninth grade and graduating bilingual, biliterate and tech-savvy, tech-literate.
A former high school teacher, Susan served as Chief Academic Officer and then as Interim Superintendent for Seattle Public Schools before joining Highline in 2012. She previously held leadership positions in Evergreen Public Schools (Vancouver, WA), Portland Public Schools and the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
Susan is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and earned master’s degrees from Stanford University and Harvard University. She also holds a doctoral degree in Administration, Planning and Social Policy from Harvard’s Urban Superintendents Program.
