"You got to be involved with your child, and Destiny gives you that opportunity. You have all kinds of ways to connect with the teachers. They're always available."
What makes Destiny Charter Middle School Unique
Destiny Charter Middle School enrolls children from diverse neighborhoods in the Tacoma area. Students benefit from engaging with peers from Tacoma’s Eastside, Hilltop and South End neighborhoods as well as Lakewood, Spanaway and Puyallup.
We provide a college preparatory curriculum and culture for all our learners. Students learn about and visit area colleges and are supported to choose the best high school to put them on track. Last year, over a third of our students were admitted into selective magnet schools, double the rate of district attendance.
Our families have been actively involved in the creation of Destiny. Our Advisory committee, consisting of 20+ families and community leaders met monthly to give the critical input and local context to build our academic model and choose our name and colors. Our students choose our mascot, the Destiny Knight.
