Parents sharing the process of searching for a school in Greater Philadelphia. What kind of school are you looking for? Charter, public, private, city, suburban?
I just got my first charter school lottery results from Wissahickon Charter. My son’s name was selected randomly as number 131 out of 165 applicants. Seats were offered only to the first 22 names drawn (the rest of the seats were offered to younger siblings of current students). So that is a rejection and more or less a zero chance of a spot opening up and being offered to us at that high number. Disappointing. But at least that will be one less school to have to consider. bleh.
