  • Interested in enrolling at SSHS?

           Here’s what you need to know

    • Enrollment at SSHS is different than the other high schools. We are a school of CHOICE so students are admitted through an interview process. We do not accept all students who apply.
    • South Sound High School will be closing its doors in June 2020 and reopening in September 2020 as a different school with a different focus. Therefore, for the 2019-20 school year, we will only be admitting seniors (or super seniors) who are on track to graduate in June 2020.
    • Trimester 2 of the 2019-20 school year begins on Monday, December 2, 2019.
    • We are now only enrolling seniors and super seniors. For the second trimester, students must have 16 credits to be eligible for an enrollment interview. We are not enrolling freshmen, sophomores, or juniors (classes of 2021, 2022, and 2023); there are no exceptions.
    • Term 2 interview dates will be November 4 - November 25th.  

     

     

Steps to Enroll

    1. Be sure you (the student) WANT to attend SSHS. We are a choice school, so students must choose us to attend. If a student doesn’t want to enroll, or is not sure, there is no need to schedule an interview.
    2. Get on the interview list. You can do this by submitting this form OR by calling Mrs. Villalobos at (360) 412-4882. Either method is fine.
    3. Set up your interview appointment. You can do this by calling Mrs. Villalobos at 360-412-4882 or emailing her at kvillalobos@nthurston.k12.wa.us. She will schedule your interview with Mrs. Grizzle (Principal).  Interviews begin on Monday, June 10, 2019.
    4. Attend your interview. We are conducting interviews from November 4- 25 for the 2nd term.  Want to get into SSHS? Ensure you do the following during your interview:
      • Bring your parent or guardian with you. This is a REQUIREMENT (unless you are independent).
      • Learn about South Sound prior to the interview; check out the website and school's Facebook page. Ensure you want to attend; we only enroll students who choose us.
      • Communicate your educational plan and goals to the Principal.
      • Share how you intend to be a successful student at South Sound with the Principal.
      • Bring the following copies from your most recent high schoolTranscript and Discipline Record. You can get both from your school's registration secretary.
    5. In most cases, you will find out at the end of the interview whether or not you are being accepted.

    Note: Steps 2 & 3 can be combined into one step with one phone call if you are attempting to enroll and it is November 15 or later.

    Thank you for your interest in South Sound High School! We look forward to getting to know you!
