Open House Events Welcome Prospective Students
Student ambassadors greeted families at North High, eager to show incoming freshmen the ins and outs of their school.
“My role today is to give tours to upcoming ninth graders and their families and explain to them all the various programs and classes we offer here at North,” said senior Aaliyah Farmer.
Omaha Public Schools is hosting middle and high school open houses throughout January to allow families to make their school selection preferences for 2023-24. During open houses, families can explore high school options, learn about athletics and activities, meet the staff and tour the school. Our district also hosted two, one-stop-shop school selection events in December. Each brought representatives from our nine comprehensive high schools to one place to visit with students and families.
“Open house is a great opportunity for students to go and explore schools they’re thinking about going to,” said Collette Nero, Ph.D., principal at North High. “You want to walk in and find the place that makes you feel at home.”
