Letter to 8th Grade Families:

If you missed last week’s Step-up-Night held in person at Natick High School, we are encouraging 8th graders to review the following Student Engagement Website created by the students in the Principal’s Advisory Class.  It includes a virtual tour video of the school, along with information on student organizations and athletics; all the great things that our school has to offer.

NHS is excited to host an in-person orientation on August 24-25, 2022.  


Here is the link for the Google sign-up form for our next Freshman Orientation.




We welcome the High School Graduating Class of 2026 to join us next August for our annual Freshman Orientation.  Please save the dates and register for the event by using the link above to access the sign-up form.


Freshman Orientation activities include opportunities for students to meet peers from both of our incoming middle school classes, take part in their first Freshman Seminar, receive their Chromebooks, tour the building, do team-building/icebreaker activities, experience their class schedule, and meet their upperclass mentors to name a few.  It is the best way for students to get acclimated to the school that will become their second home for the rest of their years studying with Natick Public Schools.  We look forward to meeting each of our incoming 9th Graders!
