WPS high schools named 2024 APPLY Kansas All Star High Schools

Six WPS high schools have been named 2024 APPLY Kansas All Star High Schools.

East High, Heights High, North High, Northeast Magnet, South High and West High were recognized for their efforts to increase the number of students who apply to college.

The All Star High School program recognizes and encourages activities to be scheduled throughout a single school year to encourage participation.

The high schools named All Star High Schools each held the following events which more than 1,600 students attended:

  • A district-wide APPLY Kansas application event featuring the largest turnout from our college and community partners
  • A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) completion event
  • College signing or National Decision Day event

WPS has increased its FAFSA completion rates due to the collaboration of our College and Career Center Coordinators and more focused Apply Kansas events at our high schools.
