• Welcome to the AFHS Class of 2026!

    Apex Friendship High welcomes the Class of 2026!  We are excited that you are joining us at AFHS for your high school experience.  We are dedicated to working with you to make your first year of high school successful!

    Freshman Orientation

    We are excited to welcome 9th grade students to campus on August 8 & 9.  During the orientation, students will be able to get to know the school campus, learn about clubs and other activities, walk through their class schedule, and learn about opportunities and supports at Apex Friendship High!

    Important Resources for 9th Grade Students

    The schedule for freshman orientation can be found at this link.  If a student cannot attend at their assigned time, they are welcome to attend a different session.  We ask that students notify the front office.

    If students cannot attend freshman orientation on August 8 & 9, we will be offering campus tours on August 22-24.  More details will be forthcoming.

    For questions about freshman orientation, please contact Assistant Principal Clare Freed (cfreed@wcpss.net).

    Freshman Parent Meet & Greet

    We invite 9th grade parents to an orientation session on the evening of Monday, August 8.  Tours of the building will be available between 4:30 - 6:30.  Also, parents are invited to attend a "meet & greet" with the principal and other school leaders working with 9th graders at either 4:00, 5:00, or 6:00 (same presentation, three options).  You can view details about the parent event at this link.



    Fall athletics teams will engage in workouts and tryouts prior to the first day of school.  All 9th graders are automatically eligible in their first semester of high school.  Information about workouts and tryouts can be found at this link

    Clubs, Student Council & Other Activities

    We encourage students to get involved and participate in high school beyond their course schedule.  This can include student clubs, service organizations, Student Council, and more!  Below are quick links to more information about some of these activities.

    • Clubs.  The current list of clubs is typically released in the first few weeks of the school year.  A club list will be posted at this link when it is available.  

    • Student Council.  Student Council applications for 9th grade representative positions will be made available in the first week of school.  Ensure that you listen to announcements and check your email for information and deadlines!  Please contact Ms. Wooten (twooten2@wcpss.net) if you have questions.
