Premier High School will once again allow junior high students to attend. 

"This will give us the opportunity to reach out to our junior high age population in the community once again," said Premier High School director Dan McIntosh. "It will add numbers to our enrollment which is good for our school, but ultimately it's about reaching out to our community and listening to what we needed and responding to that."

Enrollment applications are now available at the school from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. through Thursday. The school will be closed until Monday, Jan. 6. 

McIntosh said they are excited to bring back junior high students. "We're thrilled. A change in accountability was the reason we couldn't accept them for this past semester but now, those who felt like we were their only option are welcome back."

Premier High School lets students work at their own pace. McIntosh said it's not unusual to see a student finish a year's coursework in only a semester. The increased rate of schooling can help a student graduate quicker than the typical four-year system. 

"We know these kids are great students and we know they enjoyed the environment we offer. We're just glad to be a part of the community where we can be an option for education," McIntosh said. 

An open house will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 2, in the school's cafeteria.
