Thousands joined us for this year’s High School Fair

This past weekend, more than 12,500 Philadelphia students and families attended PSP’s “GreatPhillySchools High School Fair.” The event was a chance for students to find, compare and apply to high schools across the city using GreatPhillySchools. Watch this short clip from ABC6 for highlights.
 
Families took advantage of the new GreatPhillySchools mobile website and High School Guide books to help navigate more than 100 schools, including district, charter, Catholic and private schools.

As one mom from Germantown told us, “I had no idea there were this many options in the city! I feel like I have a much better chance at finding a good school for my son.”

Special thanks to the sponsors of the 2015 Fair — PECO, CRW Graphics, Permit Capital, The Goldenberg Group and eXude, Inc. — and the 200+ volunteers who made the event possible! As always, please contact us to get involved in our efforts to give more families access to high-quality schools.
