Hidden Gems High School Fair Sept 28th
That time of year is coming up… the time to start lookin’ at schools! Yeah!
I don’t know what’s better than a fair with rides and corndogs, than a school fair with tables, flyers, and Principals!
Truly though, these school fairs are a great way to meet a lot of the leaders of some of the “off the radar” high schools.
Anyone who has read this blog for a while knows that the key theme for parents when applying to high schools is “cast a wide net.” That net will feel much more strategic and comfortable if you really get to know some of the high school options in the city. I had a lot of great one on one conversations there last year. The list ranges from neighborhood high schools to private, so take you pick.
I have more high school open house info, as soon as I get organized and find it. If you know of other events parents should know about to tour the high schools, feel free to post in the comments.
