Transitions: A guide – help your child start grade 9                                                 

All students benefit from transitional support when moving from elementary to secondary school. To assist with the transition, we offer the following:

  • Forest Heights campus day visit in September
  • Introductory visits in November to your school with information about our magnet and specialized programs;
  • Parent and student Grade 8 Open House in January;
  • Visits to the high school again in May; and
  • Transition meetings between secondary and elementary Guidance and Learning Services teams; and
  • First day of school 9th grade assembly, BBQ, and Activity Fair

You will find 9th grade specific answers to questions you may have if you click on the links below and more general answers by visiting the Guidance website as a whole. In particular, “Understanding your High School Diploma”, and “Extended French”,   “Innovate”  and “Specialist High Skills Major” will provide useful information. Don’t hesitate to call the Guidance Department if you require additional information.
