NYC DOE Hosting Summer Workshop Series for High School Admissions
This summer, the DOE is hosting a workshop series to help middle school students and their families learn about high school options and the admissions process. Students entering 8th grade in September 2011 are encouraged to attend with their families.
Each workshop will take place in all of the five boroughs; translation and interpretation services will be available. All workshops run from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. You can find a complete schedule and a flyer about the workshops at the high school admissions webpage.

Session 2: Specialized High Schools
Learn about the nine Specialized High Schools and the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test
Session 3: Make Informed Decisions

It is a pity that the DOE isn't doing the separate workshop for the Arts Auditions that they did last year. I just blogged with links to the handouts and my notes from last year's workshop, as well as information on my High School Choice: Calm and Clear talk.
