    Dear 8th-Grade Parents/Guardians,

     
    Transitioning from middle school to high school can be an exciting, yet challenging time! There are open houses, applications, school tours, transcripts and even more to sift through! I believe strongly that we need to work collaboratively to ensure your child is actively engaged in preparing for the future, and an exciting part of that planning is choosing a high school! Please utilize this page as just a resource to locate pertinent information regarding the high school transition process. Please feel free to contact Ms. Shanelle Muse, Faust's School Counselor at smuse@erboe.net or via telephone at 201.804.3100 extension 3208 for any questions or concerns you may have!
