Hints and Reminders

For students who plan to apply to private colleges in the fall (or an out of state public university that requires a letter of recommendation), we have made two videos to help you start this process. These videos contain a lot of very helpful information, so please take the time to watch them in full, as they may provide answers to any questions you may have at this time. The first video gives an overview of private colleges and important application factors to consider. The second video provides specific information and directions on the process of requesting letters of recommendation at Los Gatos High School.


********************  ATTENTION  **********************

Naviance recently updated their system, and some students have struggled to find the "Teacher Letter of Recommendation Request Form" and the "School Report Student Information Sheet".

 Here are the updated instructions:

Go into Naviance, click on the About Me tab. Looking at the top right area of the screen, click on "My Surveys" (from the drop down menu). The first time you go in, click on "Surveys Not Started". Both surveys, along with the "Parent Statement" will be in there. Once you begin the survey you will be able to access it again by clicking on "Surveys in Progress".
