Welcome to Horace High School!
Dear Horace High School Freshmen Families,
We are pleased to officially welcome you and your child to Horace High School. The School Board finalized the boundaries for our district’s newest feeder system in July 2018, and in February 2019, they officially adopted the transition plan for students from Deer Creek, Horace, and Legacy Elementary Schools to attend Heritage Middle School and Horace High School. You can see details about this process and the decision on this page: https://www.west-fargo.k12.nd.us/Page/6798.
To avoid having your child attend one year of high school at Sheyenne before transitioning to Horace, and to help them start building the foundation for their experience as a Horace Hawk, your child will be attending Heritage Middle School next year as a freshman. The district will break ground this spring on Horace High. The students will transition to the new Horace High in 2021-22, when it opens its doors for the first time. Your student will be a member of Horace High School’s first graduating class in 2023-24!
In January and February, you child will participate in our normal pre-registration process to select their freshman classes. Heritage Middle School Principal Dr. Spies and Sheyenne High School Principal Dr. Cronin will work closely with the Horace students to ensure a smooth process. Unless your student is currently attending another school within the district via an approved multi-year in-district transfer, they will need to register with Horace High School.
We will be hosting a Horace High School parent and student meeting in late February to provide details and programming information about our new high school. We will also update students and parents on the construction design and innovative learning opportunities Horace will provide. The district is in the process of planning for staffing (our new principal will be selected by late February 2020) and building a schedule for Horace High School.
While the webpage for Horace High School is still under construction, we hope you find this to be your go-to place for finding information and updates on registration, back-to-school night, the daily schedule, activities, and other general notes about our school.
We are excited to embark on this journey of beginning the Horace Hawks tradition with you and your family!
