SDUHSD 2019-2020 high school selection window to open Feb. 14

The San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) high school selection window for the 2019-2020 school year will open on Feb. 14, 2019 at 8 a.m. and will close on March 1, 2019 at 4 p.m.

During the high school selection window, all current SDUHSD 8th grade students must select the high school that they wish to attend in fall of 2019. Current SDUHSD high school students who wish to change schools must also make a selection. Students currently in grades 8-11 who reside within SDUHSD boundaries, but who do not currently attend SDUHSD schools and wish to do so in fall 2019 must also select a high school during the High School Selection Window. SDUHSD high school students who wish to remain at their current high schools do not need to make any selections during the high school selection window and will automatically be re-enrolled in their current school.

Parents and students seeking additional information about each high school are invited to attend individual high school information nights. Important dates and information sessions are listed below:
