High School Articulation

High School Information Night

Students from Jane Addams have several options where to attend high school. In addition to the local Centinela Valley High Schools, students have the option to attend Environmental Charter. The counselors assist 8th grade families through the process of learning about the different high school options, meeting the application requirements and selecting the best school for the 9th grade. We encourage students to apply to at least three high schools!
