Here are some common questions and helpful answers for parents, families and students.
The current NHPS school choice application period will begin on Monday, February 13, 2023 and will end on Friday, March 10, 2023. Families will be notified on Friday, April 7, 2023 of their initial placement results. Families are encouraged to submit applications online. Why? Online applications can be modified throughout the application period and real-time notification of placement results. Paper applications will be accepted in our office at 54 Meadow Street, New Haven, CT. We urge families NOT to mail in applications, as we have no control over the timeliness of receipt of mail. No applications received after Friday, March 10, 2023 will be accepted.
If you are completing a paper application, you can use a single application to apply for up to 2 children. You must use an additional application if you are applying for more than 2 children. If you are completing an online application you must complete a separate application for each child but do have the ability to use the sibling linking option.
Yes. All waitlists from the previous year have expired. Typically, all waitlists expire on October 1st of each school year.
