Heading to High School
|Getting to know your high school helps insure a successful transition. PPS has two focus high schools with specialized programs and seven neighborhood high schools.|
NEIGHBORHOOD HIGH SCHOOLSAll neighborhood high schools offer an eight-course schedule with a full core academic program, support and advanced classes and a range of electives. Students interested in a focus school must apply in the lottery. The process for attending a neighborhood high school outside the neighborhood in which you live will be clarified in mid-January, 2015 at the School Choice website.
