High School Selection

Choosing the right fit for you!

What to Know

The fall is an important time for 8th graders who are thinking about their high school choices. Information regarding High School selection process will be sent home with students the week of September 21st. Stay Tuned!

The "High School" section of this website is kept up to date with lots of information of upcoming events, and students/families are welcome to contact Ms. Akerley ( makerley@sau74.org ) with any questions about the high school process.

Our main area high schools are:


  • Dover High School*
  • Oyster River High School
  • Somersworth High School
  • Coe Brown Northwood Academy
  • Cocheco Arts and Technology Academy (CATA)

***Please note that our official School of Record for Barrington students is Dover High School. This means that unless families plan on choosing alternate high school options, Dover High School is where Barrington Students should plan on enrolling.
