Senior parking procedures until permits are issued
Until the senior student parking applications/parking spaces are issued, only senior students will be allowed to park in three designated areas in the school lots:
Senior students can park on the side lot of Jones Gym, the front lot of Jones gym (between the yellow lines) and on Senior Hill.
Junior students are prohibited from parking on the school lots but are allowed to park at the Football Stadium lot.
Attention All AP Students

Changes are coming to the Collegeboard's Advanced Placement Program beginning in the fall. AP registration will take place once students are scheduled into the AP online classroom during the first class cycle. Students must decide about taking AP exams and pay in the fall so that exams can be ordered by the new Collegeboard deadline. The AP experience will largely remain the same—students will be enrolled in classes at the same time, and exams will still be administered in May—but there are a few changes they'll notice throughout the 2019-20 school year. The biggest advantage will be that students have access to more AP practice and feedback resources.

The ASVAB Career Exploration Program

The ASVAB Career Exploration Program is a widely used and respected career development program and test. The ASVAB will be available, free of charge to all Cherry Hill High School West students in grades 10-12 on Friday, January 11, 2019.

Developed by the Department of Defense, the ASVAB Career Exploration Program helps students to identify potential careers in both military and civilian arenas. Although the military uses this sort of testing to help identify occupational specialists, students who plan to attend college or technical school will also benefit from this program, as it helps them to focus their interests on relevant career paths.

An ASVAB representative will be at Cherry Hill West on Friday, January 11, 2019 to administer the test at 7:30 AM. Because the three hour test requires students to miss some of their classes, we are asking for parental permission prior to allowing your son or daughter to participate. Please have your son or daughter see their guidance counselor for a permission slip.

Please note that signed permission slips must be submitted to Guidance no later than January 8, 2019, and students must report on time to the exam.

Students can visit www.asvabprogram.com or www.march2success.com in order to practice for the exam.
