Magic Mountain

For Spring 2023, eighth grade students are going to Universal Studios, not to Magic Mountain.

Eighth grade students have traditionally gone to Magic Mountain for their Spring trip. For Spring 2023, however, they voted for Universal Studios instead.

When students go to Magic Mountain, the park is not open to the general public. It is a night reserved for middle schools. 


Only a limited number of students can attend. Students who participate must be eligible according to the 15-week progress report. Refer to the Eighth Grade Eligibility page for requirements.

  • Cost: $90.00, cash-only.
  • Students may pick-up Magic Mountain permission packets in the Eighth Grade Sponsor's room during break or lunch on a date to be announced.
  • There are NO replacement packets if you lose yours.
  • Tickets will go on sale on a date to be announced
  • Seats are limited.
  • Purchase Tickets at the Student Store.
  • When purchasing tickets, students must have:
    • 8th Grade Student I.D.
    • $90.00 cash
    • Signature pages from the permission packet
  • If a student is Ineligible according to the 15-week progress report, they will lose their seat and have their money refunded.
  • Parents with questions should contact a Counselor or Assistant Principal.

Students may pick up Permission Packets in Eighth Grade Sponsor's room on a starting date to be announced.
