Who is eligible for Denton ISD's School of Choice?
Fred Moore High School is the high school of choice in Denton ISD offering both Fall and Spring commencement ceremonies. Applicants seek admission to FMHS to accelerate instruction and graduate early or recover lost credits and graduate as soon as possible, based on their individual circumstances. All students interested in attending Fred Moore are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants demonstrate an intrinsic motivation to work independently, a desire to connect with the school, and a clear understanding of their postsecondary goals.
Interested students must complete an online application and receive a letter of recommendation from their counselor/administrator. After careful review of a student’s transcript, test scores, and attendance, they will be granted an interview to meet with the principal to discuss if Fred Moore is their best academic option or if a different academic setting would be most appropriate. If the student is currently enrolled in a Denton ISD school, he/she should not withdraw from the home campus until they have been formally accepted to Fred Moore. Acceptance and enrollment at Fred Moore are competitive and based on space availability. There may be a waiting period before an interview is scheduled, and there is no guarantee a student will be accepted to the program.
While enrolled at Fred Moore High School, students are expected to earn a minimum of 5 academic credits per semester, maintain 98% attendance, and comply with the district's student code of conduct.
