Freshman Orientation Sessions

Our Davenport Community Schools are hosting Freshman Orientation/Parent Information Sessions at each of our three traditional high schools in November and December. These sessions are a great way for current 8th grade students and their families to learn more about our high schools and select the school that best matches their interests prior to registering for the 2017-2018 school year.

The sessions will be held as follows:

  • West High School, 3505 W. Locust St.  at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 8th. Come learn about Inspire Academy which includes 5 career pathways for students to explore including: Advanced Manufacturing/Engineering Tech, Computer Science, Engineering, Finance/Accounting, and Health Sciences.
  • Central High School, 1120 Main St. at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 15th. Join the staff at Central to learn about a wide-range of opportunities, particularly in the arts, due to their alignment with the Creative Arts Academy.
  • North High School, 626 West 53rd St. at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 6th. Learn about North’s Accelerated Associates Degree program that allows students to graduate at the end of their four year high school career with both a high school diploma and an Associate of Arts degree from Scott Community College – at no extra cost to the student or their family.

I encourage you to visit one or all of these fine high schools to find the fit that is right for your student.
