High School Planning



    September 2023

    Dear Eighth Grade Parent/Guardian, 

    This is an important decision making year for you and your eighth grade student. This school  

    year, information will be presented regarding the courses and programs available at Henry P.  Becton Regional (https://www.bectonhs.org/) Every eighth grade student will have an  

                                    individual conference with their school counselor where long and short-term goals will be  

    discussed and a tentative schedule of courses for their freshman year at Henry P. Becton  

    Regional High School will be selected. 

    If you would like to explore high school options other than Becton Regional High School, 

    please use the information below to guide students and parents to open houses and the  

    application process. I look forward to working with you and your child in planning a challenging  and rewarding high school experience. 


    Christina Blundo, School Counselor
