What our students are saying...

“The unique programs at Career are what make it exceptional. Whether it is the Anatomy and Physiology partnered with Yale Medical School or business classes’ field trips to New York City, we have extremely rare opportunities. What’s more, these programs allow students to cement the information they learn in textbooks through hands-on experiences. Career will help you grow as a student and as a person.“ - Tanvi Patel, Grade 12

2013 Lottery Results Data

2013 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 change 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.
