Philadelphia High Schools
For Philadelphia’s 8th graders it’s a somewhat scary time – a time to learn about high schools and make choices for admission next year.
Choosing a high school for 8th graders is tough in Philadelphia; this year it’s harder than ever. But there is help.
The race is on for Philadelphia’s public school 8th graders. By November 2nd they must select five high schools and starting September 19 applications will be accepted.
The Philadelphia Public School Notebook provides data on all high schools: admissions requirements, locations, enrollments, demographics and in many cases activities both in and after school. A section in Spanish is included.
