Congratulations Joshua Irizarry-Ortiz on achieving the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout! Only 4% of Scouts achieve this rank, so it is an admirable achievement.

All acceptances must be made no later than March 22. Acceptance is not considered final until we have your paperwork! All Accepted and Waitlisted students are invited to a tour on Monday, March 18, 10:00- 11:30. Parents may park in the bus ramp and driver ed range. (3rd driveway).

If you are a private school student, you will need to register at HHS as well by June 14. Here is information about that: REGISTRATION Checklist 2019

If you were accepted but lack prerequisites like Algebra 1 or the first year of a language, you will need to fill out this form and return it with your acceptance forms: Provisional Acceptance Contract – Revised

If you were waitlisted, you should have also received an email with a form to return indicating that you wish to remain on our wait list. This document must be to us no later than March 22. We will be contacting students on our list as we have space available. We do not publish a list because we do not know who will request to stay on our wait list; thus, any information we give may be misleading.
