Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How does the waiting list work at City High School?

Offers of admissions will be sent to students who have met the entry requirements in accordance with spaces available in student’s prospective grade level.

The number of students in each class will not exceed 15 students, with a current average class size of 8-10 students. City High School has a 4 to 1 student to staff ratio.
