    Heights High School transfer Requirements:


    Magnet School of Technology: Our Magnet program has a district set minimum Matrix score of 80.  The Matrix score is comprised of the previous year’s, final, *core averages combined with standardized test scores for that same year.


    Career & Technical Education Endorsements (CTE):  For our CTE programs, we look at your overall report card.  This includes your grades (80 core average), attendance, and conduct grades.  We will also look at your standardized test scores to make sure standards for the previous year were met.


    International Baccalaureate Program (IB): This is our most rigorous program, and for that reason, we require a minimum core average of 90% to apply. 

    We understand that we set high requirements for our students; however, we do that with our student’s success & best interest in mind.  Attending a school on a transfer means that your seat in the school depends on your success in the program.  We want to set up all our student candidates for success, so that the end result can be a plethora of IB Diplomas and Industry Certifications.


    *Core classes = science, math, reading/language arts, and social studies
