What our students are saying...
«What makes NHA meaningful to me is to be surrounded by people who share my love for academics and going deeper into issues that are important...around the world...The staff members and students that I've met...at NHA are people I know that care about me, and they have made a huge impact on my life, my perspective, and my future.» -Cynthia, Grade 11
2012 Lottery Results Data
2012 Lottery Results Data
In an effort to help make families make informed decisions about choosing magnet and charter schools, for the first time NHPS is publishing last year’s lottery data for each magnet and charter school at the bottom of each page. Although the data changes year to year, you can see a snapshot by grade level of how many seats were available, how many applicants applied, how many applicants lived in the neighborhood and how many applicants had siblings. Seats and applicants are specific to New Haven and suburban residents. Hopefully this added information, along with attending Open Houses, will give families the information necessary to choose schools that will fit the individual needs of their children.
