Like Zillow for schools: New website offers info about all Newark schools
The recently launched My School Newark website offers a searchable database of some 185 traditional public, public charter, magnet, vocational and private schools and preschools and how to apply to them. Unlike the existing Newark Enrolls site run by Newark Public Schools, the new site includes additional charters, private, parochial schools, private pre-K providers, and vocational-technical high schools operated by Essex County. Local leaders call it a one-stop shop for parents to have a fact-based understanding of the city’s schools.
“What we lacked in the city was a single website that could help you find all of the school options in the city and then provide an easy pass-through to whatever application system that school might use,” Kyle Rosenkrans, executive director of the New Jersey Children’s Foundation.
