The Middle and High School Choice Fair is on Saturday, December 7, from 10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Join us to learn about school options, talk to students and staff from different schools, and find out more about choosing your school.
If you have a child in 4th through 8th grade, we encourage you to attend. It’s never too early to start learning about options and planning for your child’s future!
Visiting schools is the best way to see which school will be the “best fit” for you.
Many schools have at least one “open house” between October and December when you can for you to visit and ask questions. If you can’t make it to a school's scheduled “open house,” call the school and ask if you can visit at a more convenient time.
Many schools also have shadow days, where you can partner with a current student and attend classes to get a real feel for the school.
Confused about something related to the high school choice process? No worries! There is a staff member at your current school who can help you find a high school that is perfect for you.
You can talk to this person about high school programs, which schools you’re eligible to attend, visiting schools you’re interested in, how to apply, and more.
