GROWCommunity is working to support a seamless K-12 system in our community anchored around Amundsen High School and Lake View High School, neighborhood high schools that offer exceptional educational opportunities for students. Eighth grade students from any of the GROW elementary schools who apply to Amundsen or Lake View through GoCPS will be guaranteed admission, regardless of where they live.
On November 6, Hamilton Elementary Counselor, Lynda Gardner, and GROWCommunity Executive Director, Sarah Makela, hosted a webinar walking prospective 8th grade GROW families through the process of accessing Lake View and Amundsen seats through the GoCPS application. Reminder: The GoCPS application deadline is December 22, 2017.
A recording of this webinar is now available for anyone to watch at their convenience. The webinar provides an overview of the GROW enrollment policy, GoCPS basics, GoCPS information specific to the GROW enrollment policy, and resources for more information. A written resource is available here.
We are excited that all students graduating from the GROW elementary schools have the opportunity to attend Amundsen or Lake View, two great options from which to choose.
