What our students are saying...

”After the lottery, I went to (another school) because I was not accepted to any of my choices. A month later I was transferred to Hyde and it didn’t take me long to realize that this was my school.“ - Tania, Grade 11

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.
