High School Information Nights for 8th-grade families

At Lincoln Public Schools, students have an option to choose which high school they would like to attend. All the high schools provide a high-quality educational experience for all their students, but each school also offers different opportunities and programs.

Each high school will still be offering open houses for eighth-grade families to tour and ask questions before the enrollment deadline. 

High School Open Houses:

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 East High School 6:30 p.m
Thursday, January 11, 2018 Southwest High School 6:30 p.m.

**Rescheduled**
Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Southeast High School 6:30 p.m.
Thursday, January 18, 2018 North Star High School 6:30 p.m.
Monday, January 22, 2018 Northeast High School 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday, January 23, 2018 Lincoln High School 6:30 p.m.

4 ways 8th-grade students and families can make the most of high school information nights

#1 - Attend as many high school information nights as you wish. They are scheduled on different nights for this reason. Start discussions early with all involved (see #2). Also, remember to file the High School Choice Form by the Jan. 31 deadline.

#2 - Consider the student’s current and future interests and talents prior to the event. Then ask questions about those topics to teachers and current students at the information event at each school.

#3 - Any student can be successful academically at any school. Look for ways the student can get involved and participate, while staying on top of their studies.

#4 - Consider the student’s current friends, but also consider the opportunity to make new friends. Making new friends exposes students to new activities and common interests.
