High School Preparation

PTSA wants to support students and their families as they begin the new adventure of high school. In our National PTA School of Excellence goals, we committed to serving as the parent voice with school administration in gathering resources and advocating for programs and information that support the student and their family as they prepare for high school.

We hope this website provides quick access to important information related to high school preparation. Based on our school district pipelines, PTSA will focus information on Westview High School and Mt. Carmel High School.

Poway Unified School District also offers consolidated high school transition information here.
