The Hartford Choice office will be hosting “Get on the Bus” tours for middle school students in January.  Tours will leave the Main Branch of the Hartford Public Library on January 19th and on the 26th at 9:15 am and return at 11:00:

This is a wonderful opportunity for families to tour Hartford Public High Schools together, and to explore the themes and Academies that make these schools unique.  Principals and teachers will be available to answer questions and trained “Future Guides” will be available to help with Hartford Choice Applications upon your return to the library.  Remember, the Application deadline is January 31, 2013!

The Capital City’s Portfolio of Excellence is on the leading edge of educational reform in the United States.  Harford’s School Choice model allows you to select and apply for the schools that you feel are the best fit for your child.  While the school names may have stayed the same over time, what is happening in the buildings is changing: the instruction, the teachers and the themes are new and innovative. Hartford has award-winning options for your children.  No matter what your child wants to explore, Hartford has a school that will allow them to focus on their interests.  Your child’s future is right here in Hartford schools.

Please join us on these tours to learn more about Hartford High Schools.  For more information, or to RSVP, please contact Liz Castro at 860-695-8416 or
