At City Schools, students can apply for the middle or high school of their choice. Using Campus Portal, 5th and 8th-grade families will be able to complete and submit their choice applications between December 1 and January 22.
Visiting schools is the best way to see which school will be the “best fit” for you.
Many schools have at least one “open house” between November and January when you can visit and ask questions. If you can’t make it to a school's scheduled “open house,” call the school and ask if you can visit at a more convenient time.
Many schools also have shadow days, where you can partner with a current student and attend classes to get a real feel for the school.
Additionally, the Office of College and Career Readiness is hosting district-wide Articulation ZOOM Platform sessions. These sessions are intended to provide students and families with an opportunity to speak directly to representatives as well as a student from the schools of their choice.
The High School Choice Articulation sessions will take place from 12/8 - 12/10 (2:00 pm & 3:15 pm.)
The Middle School Choice Articulation sessions will take place from 12/15/20 - 12/17/20 (2:00 pm & 3:15 pm.). The Choice liaisons at each school will provide families the ZOOM link to these sessions later this month.
