Office of School Choice & Enrollment

School Explorer

New for 2021, we are introducing a new way to explore schools in New Haven. The process of choosing the right school for your child was impacted significantly by COVID-19. In an effort to help parents learn about school choices from home, the New Haven Public Schools’ Office of School Choice and Enrollment, in collaboration with ConsiliumBots, has created an online interface. With virtual tours, drone flights, and a specialized search platform, the School Explorer platform provides parents with as much information about the school choice process as possible, virtually.

Virtual Tours

Application Simulator

Based on data of past Lottery outcomes, this simulator tool gives the odds of being admitted to any school choice. It is recommended to always apply to the schools that are the best fit for your child, even if admissions chances are low.
