This article applies only to incoming sixth graders who have been accepted to the AEP program for the 2018-2019 school year.

We are looking to add new information, photos, personal accounts, and more. If you can help please contact us to let us know how!
Parents – Let us know about your child’s school. What critical information are we missing? What do you like about it? What should prospective students know? Encourage your principals and parent associations to engage with us to share information with potential new students and parents.
Principals/Administrators – It’s difficult to field all the questions that new students and parents have. Let us help you. Share with us information about your schools, and allow us to support your outreach efforts.
Students – Let us know your perspective. After all, choosing a school is all about finding the best experience for you. Send us pictures of your school, and we will publish the best ones, crediting you for your work!
Is pre-kindergarten available in my child’s neighborhood? What middle school do I go to after elementary school? How are the high schools in the area? Should we prepare for admissions tests?
For many of us parents, choosing a public middle school or high school was not necessary. When we were kids, we simply hopped on the bus that took us to the nearest school. In Jersey City, however, the students have options.
AEP, Infinity, Explore 2000, LCCS, TECCS, McNair, High Tech, private schools, and quite a few more. Where should parents and students begin? We had so many questions, and it was difficult to get answers. We talked to our friends, we asked the parent association at our elementary school for help, we visited schools, and we spoke to students.
But wouldn’t it be nice to have all of the information, freely available to everyone, in one place? We thought so, too.
