• Selection for NJHS is based on the following 5 criteria:
    • Scholarship
    • Citizenship
    • Leadership
    • Character
    • Service.
    Invitations to apply are offered to 7th graders by the 4th week of the 3rd quarter and are based on having a cumulative grade point average of 90 or above in core classes (Math, English, Science and Social Studies).
    Once the applications are returned, teachers will complete an evaluation for each candidate.  Next, the NJHS teacher committee will meet and discuss acceptance or rejection of each candidate.  If a student is not selected, he/she have the opportunity to appeal and he/she will be considered further based off his/her appeal paperwork.
    All those who apply will be notified by the first week following Spring Break in order to find out whether or not they have been accepted.
    Decisions about acceptance are made by the Ronny Crownover NJHS Faculty Council, and are based on a point system that rates the above mentioned 5 selection criteria. If you would like to appeal your decision please contact Aimee Barbian at abarbian@dentonisd.org or Taylor Hotchkiss at thotchkiss@dentonisd.org.
