Delta High: Final Date to Apply
Delta High School is offering an information night for prospective freshmen and their families tonight. It comes ahead of the final date for applying to the school.
Students in the Tri-Cities who are interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) are given an opportunity to be a part of an innovative small high school that combines imagination with analytical skills and approaches challenges from a global perspective to create new ways of thinking.
The information night is designed to help eighth grade students and their parents determine if Delta High School is the right fit for them. Delta teachers, current students, and parents will be on hand to meet, answer questions, and talk about their experiences.
Entry into Delta High School is by lottery. There are a limited number of available slots allotted to students in the Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland school districts to form the 2013-2014 freshman class of 100 students.
Students wishing to attend Delta High School first indicate their interest and then are selected at random fromthe pool for the slots available for each district.
Delta High is a partnership of the Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland school districts along with Battelle, Columbia Basin College, Washington State University Tri-Cities, and the Washington State STEM Foundation.
Information night begins at 6 p.m. at the KSD Administration Center at 1000 W. Fourth Ave. in Kennewick.
The last date to apply is this Thursday.
