    Academic Programs and Forecasting

    Timeline for Forecasting for Classes for 2022/2023

    January 2022

    • All students who are currently living in the IBW neighborhood and who are enrolled at a PPS middle school do not need to enroll/register.    
    • The Forecasting Guide is now available here on our website. The forecasting worksheet and directions will be given to students in early January when counselors visit schools (Robert Gray and Jackson) in person. 
    • For families new to PPS (private school or new to the neighborhood), we will need you to enroll with IBWHS.  Enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year can begin any time.  We just need proof that you live in the neighborhood, immunizations, IEP and school records from previous school.  Please start your process by contacting our counseling secretary, Sharon Dailey, by email at sdailey@pps.net.  After you enroll, you will be contacted by the school with further directions on how to complete the forecasting process.
    • We hope to have all of our incoming 9th grade students forecasted by February 4, 2022.  

     May 2022

    • If allowed (COVID-19 safe) we hope to host an in-person event for all of our incoming 9th graders.  We will send information to everyone who has enrolled with us through school email, middle school newsletters, and our website.
