8th Grade Parent Information Night for Early College & AP/Honors
Before you know it, your child will be scheduling high school courses! It is an exciting, but somewhat nerve-wracking time, especially if this is your first child attending high school.
Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be providing opportunities for you and your student to learn more about two of our popular freshman pathways: Early College and Honors/Advanced Placement.
On January 13th in the high school auditorium, we will have the Early College and Honors/AP Informational meeting from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. Parents who are interested in either of these pathways are encouraged to participate. Should you not be able to attend, we will record the session and post it to our website. The agendas are provided below.
For those interested in learning about the Early College program, please attend the 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. session. You may stay for the Honors/AP pathway versus the Early College pathway immediately following.
