High schools planning events to welcome next year’s freshmen classes

A sign near the high school doors says Welcome Back Edsel Ford Students

Edsel Ford High, Dearborn High and Fordson High are planning events to introduce next year’s ninth grade students to their future schools.

Eighth graders and their parents across the district are invited to attend the event at the child’s future school, even if those students are not currently enrolled in Dearborn Public Schools.  Students who plan to join the district next school year can enroll in the spring and start working with the counseling office on their fall class schedule.  Dearborn Public Schools only accepts students who live within the district’s boundaries. Learn more about enrolling on the district’s enrollment page at https://dearbornschools.org/enroll.

Each ninth grade welcome event will include an introduction and important school information from administrators, followed by the opportunity for students to talk with coaches for fall sports and representatives from school clubs.

The district also offers high school/early college programs housed at the Henry Ford College, including the Henry Ford Early College and the Henry Ford Early College-Advanced Manufacturing.  Those free five-year schools require an application for admission, and admitted students will learn more about their ninth grade welcome events directly from the school.
