Lemont High School will host its annual 8th Grade Open House on Wednesday, November 7, from 6:30-8 p.m. The event provides an opportunity for current 8th grade students and their parents - from both Old Quarry Middle School and local Catholic and private elementary schools - to meet Lemont High School teachers, guidance counselors and administrators.
Any incoming student who lives within Lemont High School’s attendance boundaries, or who plans on living within those boundaries during the 2013-14 school year, is encouraged to take advantage of this "sneak peak" of the school. Lemont High School’s attendance boundaries include Lemont and portions of Darien, Downers Grove and Woodridge.
Students and parents alike will have the chance to learn about the fine academic and extra-curricular programs offered by Lemont High School, which recently was named as one of the top high schools in Cook County by Chicago Magazine and for many years has ranked among the area’s top high schools according to both the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times. Prospective students and their parents may visit various areas throughout the building as well.
