From The Principal:   Mr. Christian Mueller

Spring is around the corner! 

It seems hard to believe but the Jeannette Counseling staff will be meeting soon with students to begin the scheduling process for the 2018-2019 school year.  In the not too distant future, you can expect your child to bring home with them some paperwork for selecting their courses for next year.  I encourage you look over the scheduling information that is brought home and to have a conversation. Parental involvement is very important in the process of selecting courses for next year.  There is much research that shows that the more rigorous a workload a student takes in high school, the more prepared that student will be for college.  So let’s make sure your child is ready for that workload in high school.  I encourage you explore the advanced courses offered here at Jeannette.  It is never too early to start a plan for education!  I want to send another reminder out that the deadline for current 8th graders to apply for the UCS specialty programs (CSI, MST, IB) is 3pm on February 26th
Visit for more information about the application process.  Again, feel free to contact your child’s counselor if you have any questions about the scheduling process.
