School Tours and Shadowing

In order to preserve the order of the prepared classroom environment, we do not offer shadowing during school hours. As part of our recruitment and enrollment process, we conduct a New Family Orientation, an individual Family Meeting and a Home Visit. These events help us to get to know you and your child so we may choose the best classroom environment for your child. After that, we will invite you and your child in for a grade-specific classroom visit during our extended day program.

2015 Lottery Results Data

2015 Lottery Results Data 

In an effort to help families make informed decisions about choosing a school, New Haven Public Schools is publishing last year’s lottery data for each Magnet and Charter School. Although the data changes year to year, you can see a snapshot by grade level of how many seats were available for each school. Also, you can see how many applicants applied, how many applicants lived in the neighborhood, and how many applicants had siblings. These numbers reflect a combined total of all first, second and third school choices of each applicant. We hope this information, along with the opportunity to attend open houses, will help families choose schools that will fit the needs of their children.
