Did you know that Vail parents choose where to send their children to high school? The Vail School District believes in providing parents with a choice of the high school that their children attend. We have created six unique high schools from which you can choose. Through this process, you will have the opportunity to learn more about each of the high schools and choose the school that is the best fit for your child for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year. Each Monday morning you will receive an email from us with your “next steps” in the high school choice process including things you can be doing to help you make the best choice when that time comes. This week is the time to familiarize yourself with each of the high school options and save some dates. Please CLICK HERE to visit our high school choice website where you will find information for each school including their mission/vision, courses, clubs, sports, fine arts, career and technical education programs, and more. And, then save the following open house dates where you and your 8th grader can take tours, ask questions, and meet the principals, teachers, and staff. Tuesday, January 10th - VIC Open House 5:30-7PM Wednesday, January 11th - Andrada Polytechnic Open House 5:00PM -7:00PM Thursday, January 12th - Cienega Open House 5:00PM - 7:00PM Wednesday, January 18th - Empire Open House 5:00PM - 7:00PM Tuesday, January 24th - Vail Academy Open House 5:00PM - 7:00PM Thursday, January 26th - Mica Mountain Open House 5:00PM - 7:00PM All 8th grade families will submit their high school choice rankings online beginning Monday, January 30th on the HS Choice Portal.
