High school informational nights for eighth-grade students and families, with podcast

Listen to our new podcast, 'What to know when picking your high school'

Eighth-grade students and their families are invited to attend informational meetings held at each high school in Lincoln Public Schools. The meetings are designed for students and families to meet with school counselors and instructional staff, in addition to that school's current students.

The meetings are scheduled to give families opportunities to attend more than one school's information session. Students entering the ninth grade may choose the high school they want to attend.

For more information on the event at each school, contact the school's counseling center, or contact Pat Hunter-Pirtle, director of Secondary Education for LPS, at 402-436-1637 or email him at

In February and early March, high school counselors will be visiting the LPS middle schools to meet with students who are planning to enroll at their high school. At that time, high school counselors will discuss graduation requirements, answer questions about the high school curriculum, and register eighth-grade students for ninth-grade courses. Students will be participating in pre-registration activities with their eighth-grade counselors before the high school counselor visits.
