8th Grade Parents - HS Transition Information

Reported by on 11/8/19

Attention 8th grade parents:

The transition from middle school to high school can be a bit overwhelming for not only our students, but for you as well. We want to assure you that there is a process in place that will assist in answering questions and easing anxiety. Both NVHS and WVHS host a parent night where department chairs and administration will present. This date typically takes place in winter (January/February). 8th grade teachers make recommendations for core high school courses, but you and your child have a voice in that decision making. A process of how to change a recommendation will be shared with you as time gets closer.

It's never too early to start looking at course descriptions and requirements. The link below will provide you with the following information:
