Barrington offers informative look at high schools for parents, students
To assist families, a high school fair and parent information night is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 15, at 6 p.m. at Barrington Middle School.
“For Barrington, we’re doing everything quicker than other years,” Waldron said. The process typically begins in January.
“Everything’s optional,” Waldron said. “We encourage all eighth-graders to participate.”
A week later, on Oct. 22, local eighth-graders can tour Dover High School from 9 to 10 a.m.
Also, student ambassadors from Dover will visit Barrington Middle School in the future to provide more information or to answer any questions.Kim Stephens, dean of students at Dover High, said there are about 150 upperclassmen who serve as student ambassadors and can relate to incoming freshmen by sharing their experiences.
Stephens said Dover High is offering tours to help inform potential students and transfer students from communities, including Barrington, Nottingham and around the city, throughout October.
“The high schools have been very flexible,” Waldron said, adding he’s “already looking at a list a shadow dates starting next week.”Waldron recommends students and parents keep abreast of events, schedules and information posted on the guidance website at https://sites.google.com/site/barringtonguidance/home.
