Transfer Students (10th-12th grade students new to West ONLY)
Transferring to a different high school can be a challenging experience; therefore, the West Forsyth Office of Student Services will sponsor a short orientation program for 10th-12th grade students new to West on Tuesday, August 23. The program will give new students an opportunity to meet each other and become more familiar with the campus and resources at West Forsyth. The program will begin in the Media Center at 4:30 pm and end at approximately 5:00 pm, followed by a brief campus tour.
The orientation program is limited to students; however, parents are encouraged to drop off their students in the Media Center by 4:30 pm and can plan to join their son/daughter at the end of the program at 5:00 pm. After the program, families are encouraged to attend Open House together which runs from 5:00-7:00 pm and allows students and parents an opportunity to meet the teachers.
To help us plan for the program more efficiently, we ask that you please contact the Office of Student Services by August 22 to let us know if you intend to participate. The phone number is 336-712-4400. We look forward to welcoming you to West and helping with your adjustment to a new high school.
10th-12th Grade Open House
Open House will be on Tuesday, August 23rd, 5:00pm - 7:00pm. Students should first report to their homerooms to pick up their class schedules, then they can visit their classroom teachers in any order to meet their teachers and pick up information about their classes and required supplies. Homeroom lists will be posted on the West Forsyth website and around campus beginning Monday, August 22nd. We are looking forward to seeing our returning Titans!
