Key West High holds showcase

Key West High School teachers, students and administrators invite all eighth- through 11th-graders and their parents to the upcoming "Why Key West High?" showcase of the school's campus, curriculum, athletics and extracurricular activities.

The event takes place from 5:45 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the high school.

A welcome presentation in the auditorium from 5:45 to 6:15 p.m. will include plans for the 2014-15 school year. Students and parents will then be invited to tour and explore the campus, where various stations will highlight core and advanced placement courses, electives, athletics and other club activities. As part of the orientation process, the showcase helps students select their courses for next year and discuss campus life with teachers and other students, while familiarizing themselves with the campus and facilities.
