Parent Input for Student Placement 2014-15

Parents of incoming 7th and 8th graders for 2014-15 may give input for student placements during the window of April 15-30, 2014 by clicking on and filling out the Parent Input Form for Student Placement above.

After the window closes, students are placed and balanced Houses are formed based on student needs and teacher and parent input.   Therefore, no requests will be able to be accepted after the window closes and no requests for changes will be able to be made after students are placed.

There will be two looping houses.  All 7th graders are eligible for a looping house unless parents specifically request to opt out on the form.  Next year the looping Houses will be Global House and Wright House.
