Incoming freshman students
February's open enrollment period is an especially important time for 8th grade students who are going to enter high school in the fall. Students establish athletic eligibility at the first school they attend in grades 9-12. WIAA participation regulations apply within the District as well as between Issaquah and other districts.
In some cases, academic classes and programs may differ between Skyline and Issaquah High School and might influence attendance choices.
ROTC: All students requesting a transfer to Liberty High School for the ROTC program must apply for the transfer in February. Those students in good standing will be approved to transfer as long as they remain the ROTC program.
