Bard, Townsend Harris, Beacon, and more

Wow. Things are already popping up and HS websites. If the schools below are ones you’re interested in, note dates in your calendars. I’ll also have all this posted in the important dates section of the HS411 website. I’m also going to post emails I send on my blog so you’ll have a place to scroll back for info if you lose track of where you read things in emails.

Dates are posted on the Bard Manhattan website for their open houses but no date yet as to when registration opens up. They’re having more this year which is great - should give more families a chance to see the school:
