Dear Future NAHS Parents/Guardians/Caregivers and Students:

North Andover High School (NAHS) welcomes all 8th grade parents and students who are planning to attend the high school to our Transition Night. Please join us on Monday, February 4th from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. in the Auditorium to learn more about your student’s transition to NAHS.  The presentation is geared towards explaining the differences between the NAMS trimester and the NAHS trimester in transitioning from Middle to High School.

Families will learn about the following:

  • Schedule - Trimesters and Rotating Blocks

  • Courses - College Prep, Honors, Advanced Placement

  • Course selection process and things to consider

  • Short Q & A - general questions

Following the large group presentation, families will move to small breakout groups with NAHS Department Coordinators who will share information about specific subjects.

  • Applicable departments will have visual flow charts with course offerings available for their sessions

Here is a link to our slide show for Transition Night and you can also access the Agenda for Transition Night. Our Student Ambassadors will be available for tours of the high school from 5:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for any family who was not able to make a tour in November at the 7th & 8th Grade Open House. Those families wishing to take part in the tours should report to the NAHS Auditorium from 5:15 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

We also invite families of 8th grade students on Individualized Education Plans (IEPs’) for an introduction of our Special Education program from 6:00 - 6:30 p.m. prior to the main presentation in the Auditorium.

We look forward to seeing you at Transition Night on February 4th.
