I am excited about going to high school next year. How do I begin the process of applying to schools?

All 8th grade students, including students planning to attend their neighborhood high school, are asked to participate in the High School Selection Process.  The District’s High School Directory is a great place to start the selection process.  Students should use the directory to learn about the programs schools offer, and develop a list of schools that align with their interests and future career goals.  Students should then discuss the schools and programs they are interested in with their teachers, counselors, and parents/guardians.

When students are ready to make their selection they can obtain an application on the School District’s website or at their current school.  The School District will accept applications for high school admission from October 7 until 5 PM on December 6, 2013.  Please note that applications will not be accepted after December 6.
