High School Preparation




    As the Class of 2021 approaches the middle of its eighth grade year, we will begin preparing our students to schedule their freshman year at West Morris Central High School (WMCHS). 


    A series of orientation programs has been established to facilitate both proper placements in courses and a smooth transition for students.  


   These programs have been developed in cooperation with the guidance department at WMCHS and will be implemented by REACH, a student peer leadership group comprised of juniors at WMCHS.  We will have 3 REACH dates this year (one in Feb, March and April).  


  Below you can view the dates to remember for the 2020-21 school year.  It is important to keep in mind that your child’s academic achievement this year can impact his/her eligibility and selection for high school courses.  Please reinforce with your child the importance of this academic achievement and its relationship to placement in the WMCHS program.
