    The Transition Experience:

    Starting high school is a significant milestone, and at House 9, we are committed to ensuring a smooth and positive transition for our first-year students. We understand that this period is about adapting to new academic challenges and finding one's place in a larger community.

    Academic excellence is a core principle at House 9. We emphasize the importance of a strong foundation in core subjects, setting the stage for success in future academic pursuits. Our experienced educators are dedicated to providing engaging and challenging coursework that fosters a love for learning and prepares students for the rigors of high school academics.

    A well-rounded education goes beyond the classroom. House 9 encourages students to explore their interests and passions through extracurricular activities and clubs. Whether joining a sports team, participating in the arts, or engaging in community service, we provide avenues for students to discover and develop their talents outside traditional academics.
