MESA Class Incoming Class of 2013-14: Final Decision have been made and letters are going out in the morning mail. You will also be receiving an email shortly. This was the toughest year yet to evaluate applications as we received superb applications from all over the county. Applications came to us from Jack Jouett, Sutherland and Burley but we also had large numbers from Walton and Henley Middle Schools. We also saw applications from almost every other school in the county: Charlottesville Catholic, Peabody, Montesorri Mountaintop, the Field School, The Village School, Tandem Friends, The Waldorf School, Community Charter School, home school students as well as several applications from students who will be moving to Albemarle County over the summer.
For those students who are in the Western or Monticello feeder pattern you will be contacted shortly with additional information so that you can become a full time AHS student next year.
