Future Freshman events announced
DYSART SCHOOLS - Students entering high school in the 2018-2019 academic year, and their parents, are invited to attend an incoming freshman meeting to learn about high school expectations, signature programs, and the process for registration and class selection. These meetings are designed to provide incoming freshmen with an overview of the academic programs available at Dysart Unified School District’s four high schools and explain the process of registering for an appropriate grouping of ninth-grade classes.

Future Freshman Nights are scheduled as follows:
  • Dysart High School: Thursday, January 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Shadow Ridge High School: Wednesday, January 17 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Valley Vista High School: Tuesday, January 16 from  5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
  • Willow Canyon High School: Thursday, January 18 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Students and parents will learn about high school classes, course selection, signature and career-related programs, core curriculum, and graduation requirements. Attending Future Freshman Night motivates eighth graders to remain focused on their true academic goal – completing high school and beyond.
