Should I List my High School?
When to list your high school education on your resume…
- Unless you are currently a high school student, omit high-school education from your resume. If you insist on putting it on, at least list your college education first!
- High school is expected on some international resumes.
- High school can be listed if, for example, you won a major award that shows early interest in your career field (or if you attended some prestigious prep school).
- Space issue: If you are trying to condense to one page, high school is something you can easily omit.
