School Instructional Hours
Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year "Tour Season!" At James Lick, we conduct school tours every Monday, beginning in October and conclude in January before the first round of applications are due. We welcome you and your child to participate. Meet in the office area by 9am as the tours begin shortly after that hour. You can expect to be on the tour for about one hour. No appointment is needed, simply show up and be prepared to participate. We encourage you to have your questions ready as the final part of the tour is a Q&A session with the principal. We look forward to seeing you here!
