Link students and staff wish all a very Happy New Year! We are excited about 2013 and all the wonderful opportunities for our students’ growth and development. We’ll be sharing these via the website and our Facebook page. So stay tuned!
Link’s unique high school placement class helps our 8th grade students locate and apply for high schools that meet their needs, their level of preparedness, and their dreams. The class is a mandatory after school class, during which Greg Silver, Link’s director of admissions and high school placement, ensures that students have all the information and the tools to get into the schools of their choice.
The high school placement class runs for three quarters, and emphasizes the student’s need to be proactive in and take responsibility for the process. After initial meetings with individual families to determine the best school options, Mr. Silver’s class takes the student through the next steps. They learn how to complete applications effectively and efficiently, how to approach and take a high school entrance exam, and how to ensure a successful interview.
It works: over the past decade at least, Link students have been accepted to at least one, and usually more, high schools of their choice. Stay tuned for acceptances for the Class of ’13!
