High School Choice
Chester Academy & Warwick Valley High School
The transition to High School is a very exciting time for our 8th grade families. In GWL, our students have the opportunity to attend Chester Academy or Warwick High School. Over the course of the fall semester, 8th grade students will participate in guidance lessons in their classrooms related to high school choice, as well as informational sessions from each school. Parents will be invited to attend informational nights hosted by the GWLMS principal, guidance counselor, and athletic director, as well as parent nights hosted by each school. This year, all of the parent informational sessions will occur virtually. Click on the links below to view this year's high school choice timeline and to access videos of the informational sessions if you were unable to attend them.
In December, students, with their family's support, will select their high school of choice and schedules for 9th grade will be developed with counselors at each respective school in the spring. The deadline for high school choice selection forms to be returned to our guidance counselor is Monday, December 14th, 2020.

Transfer requests for 8th grade students will not be considered after April 1st for any student until the following school year, as Chester and Warwick are staffing programs and developing budgets based on GWLUFSD's projected enrollment numbers.
