Planning for High School
In an effort to assist students and parents through this process, we offer several opportunities to gain information and guidance. Parents and students will be invited to an information session to discuss some of their options in September/October. Students will also be given guidance on the options they are interested in, mock interviews in several different forms, advice and guidance on the application process, and letters of recommendation. Students will meet with me many times throughout the year to ensure they are comfortable, prepared, and excited for their journey after Englewood Cliffs District.
More detailed information will be provided at the information session, but in the meantime please see below for some basic guidance on what 8th graders can expect to explore!
