What Do Parents Think About 9th Graders Attending High School?


Starting next school year, ninth grade students will attend one of the two public high schools, instead of going to the middle school.

Tonight incoming Century high ninth grade parents attended a meeting at Horizon Middle School.

The meeting focused on how to get your child ready for high school.

We asked a couple parents what they thought of the ninth graders now attending high school.

"I think it will be a little bit different but it will be nice for sports, we won't have to book them back and forth from Horizon to Century, hopefully not a lot of portables though," Lisa Pfennig said.

"I think because the classes are more geared towards getting them ready for a college environment I think having them move up to that to the high school will help prepare them better," Kristy Vadnais said.

"I would sort of like to know why ninth grade is moving up, but the high school is being built last," Pfennig said.

A meeting was also held tonight at Wachter middle school, for ninth grade parents whose child will go to Bismarck high school next year
