Getting Prepared for High School
High school is an important time for a child to grow intellectually and personally. It also prepares them for college or a job during this critical transition period into adulthood. At CPS we strive to help students achieve their full potential and become productive members within their community. We strive for academic excellence while making school a fun environment to learn in. Every high school works to understand each child and create an environment where they will “flourish."
Below are links that will help better prepare you and your child for High School enrollment.
To help you navigate the application process, we are particularly excited to offer this new
High School Guide, which contains a wealth of information about all district and charter schools and provides user-friendly specifics about each school’s application and selection procedures. The guide also provides several tools to assist you in the process of identifying and applying to high schools, such as the School choice Worksheet and the Application checklist.
