Withdrawing from MSJHS

We prefer to have as much & early notification as possible when withdrawing a student, minimum 2 days. It is the responsibility of the Parent(s)/Guardian(s) to inform the School Registrar and the student’s Attendance Clerk if you’re planning to withdraw your student from Mission San Jose High School. 

On the last day of school, student needs to attend all classes and check out with each of their teachers before the school day ends. ALL school books, library books, student ID, and other school items need to be returned to the school prior to being checked out. At the end of the day, the student will see their Attendance Clerk and registrar to submit their signed and completed Withdrawal Form


Attendance Clerks:

**If you owe money or have missing books, your new school will receive a copy of your debt ** 


Changing schools during high school can have serious implications due to the fact that students must earn credits each semester to earn a high school diploma.  Before you check your student out of Mission San Jose High School, it is suggested that you contact the high school your student will be attending and ask the following: 

When does your semester end, or has it ended already?

  • If the semester has not yet ended and your student will enroll in like courses in the new school, find out if moving your student at this time will allow him/her to earn full credit for all courses passed at the end of the semester.
  • If the semester at the new school has already ended, then your student will not receive credit for an entire semester since the semester was not completed at Mission San Jose High School before moving.  Consider doing whatever is possible to avoid losing a full semester of credits which may mean remaining at Mission San Jose High School until the semester is completed before moving to another high school.  Otherwise, your student would be required to retake these classes in summer school.  Failure to make up these classes or the lack of availability of class makeup opportunities in the new school could jeopardize completing the high school graduation requirements on time.
