Kids who live on the same street have to go to different high schools.

Does anyone know how this works?

I have one neighbor and their daughter goes to Northwestern though they clearly live closer to RHHS and South Pointe.

Thanks.

not sure if this applies to rock hill district 3 but in Greenville County Schools a kid could live near Woodmont High School (extreme southern end of the district / county) and attend Travelers Rest HS (extreme northern end of the district / county). all the parent(s) / kid have to do is fill out a special permission form if the school is NOT above capacity and submit it. now again whether Rock Hill schools have a similar policy i have no idea. but it could be a reason.

another reason could be sometimes areas of population are intensified that kids who may live closer to one school get sent to another b/c the school that is closer is already overcrowded. in greenville county there are kids who live closer to hillcrest high school but go to woodmont b/c hillcrest is so overcrowded. there are neighborhoods that are 10 minutes to hillcrest and 15 to woodmont but the kids go to woodmont b/c there isn't any room at hillcrest for them.


could that be the case with the 3 high schools in rock hill? again not sure but just a guess or two.
