High School Enrollment

High School Enrollment

Enrolling in high school is very similar to the K-8 enrollment process. The three choice school selection form is still used.

There are several things that are different when enrolling in a high school

• All high schools except King and Milwaukee High School of the Arts reserve 55% of seats for students in their attendance area.

• All high schools offer different programs. Students in a program take classes designed to teach specific skills. Many specialize in career training.

• Middle School attendance affects high school acceptance. Students with a 90% or higher attendance first semester of their eighth grade year are given preference.

• Many high schools have entrance requirements. These may include things like GPA requirements, auditions and extracurricular participation. Please attend the school’s open house or call the school of interest for details regarding entrance requirements.
