High School selection for 8th grade students starts next week

The Jefferson Union High School District (“JUHSD”) has a policy of open enrollment, allowing students who reside within JUHSD boundaries to choose to attend any one of the district's four high schools. (In the case of over-enrollment at any school, some restrictions may apply.)

To encourage informed choice, the JUHSD will host a series of Open House and Parent Information Meetings, at which school staff will describe the curriculum and the programs available at each individual school, and will respond to any questions or concerns about their school’s educational program.

All parents, guardians and students within the district are encouraged to attend one or more of these informational meetings, scheduled at each school site as follows:

Terra Nova High School (650) 550-7600 Mon., Jan. 10 at 7:00 p.m.
Oceana High School (650) 550-7300 Tue., Jan. 11 at 7:00 p.m.
Westmoor High School (650) 550-7400 Wed., Jan. 12 at 7:00 p.m.
Jefferson High School (650) 550-7700 Thu., Jan. 13 at 7:00 p.m.

(An expanded version of this text was mailed directly to the parents/guardians of every 8th grade student enrolled at an elementary school within JUHSD boundaries. The expanded version is available online at
