How do students choose?
The high school selection process
begins toward the middle of the 8th grade year. At this time, some
area high schools come to Jefferson and give presentations of their programs
and pass out school information. Schools also invite students and
parents to an informational meeting/open house. (Look for these
dates to come home on a Weekly Memo or be posted on this page as
soon as they become available.) Later in the early spring, high
schools arrange for students spend a day shadowing or touring the school.
How do students register for classes?
|Students will begin registering for high
school classes in the early spring. Although each high school handles
registration in a slightly different way, all high schools require student,
teacher and parent input. Students receive detailed course guides
and are given opportunities to ask questions about what types of courses
they should take. Our guidance counselor, the eighth grade teachers
and the high school guidance counselors are more than happy to help students
make appropriate choices!
|For some students and their families, choosing
a high school may seem like an overwhelming task! Students and parents
should not hesitate to ask at any time!
