KENNEWICK — An information night for prospective Delta High School freshmen is 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Kennewick School District Administration Center at 1000 W. Fourth Ave.
Delta High offers students in the Tri-Cities who are interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) an opportunity to be a part of an innovative small high school that combines imagination with analytical skills and approaches challenges from a global perspective to create new ways of thinking.
The information night is designed to help eighth-graders and their parents determine if Delta High is the right fit for them. Delta teachers, current students, and parents will be on hand to meet, answer questions, and talk about their experiences.
Entry into Delta High School is by lottery. A limited number of slots are available for students in the Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland school districts to form the 2011-12 freshman class of 100 students.
Students wishing to attend Delta High School first must indicate their interest, then are selected at random from the pool for the slots available for each district.
Delta High is a partnership of the Kennewick, Pasco and Richland school districts along with Battelle, Columbia Basin College, Washington State University Tri-Cities and the Washington state STEM Foundation.
