THE PHILLY High School Fair, a chance for middle-schoolers and their families to check out prospective high schools for 2014-15 enrollment, will be held in West Philadelphia.
Representatives from about 80 city schools - district, parochial and charter - will be at the Armory at Drexel University, 33rd Street near Market, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 16.
The annual event, which is usually organized by the district, had been canceled because of the district's fiscal issues; last year, it cost $137,000 to put on. This year, the Philadelphia Schools Partnership and other nonprofits are sponsoring the fair.
Confirmed schools include: Academy at Palumbo, Carver High School of Engineering & Science, Central High School, Maritime Academy Charter School, Mastery Charter Schools and Little Flower Catholic High School for Girls, among dozens of others.
