Eighth-graders from across the city are invited on Sunday to the Department of Education's annual high school fair aimed at helping students decide what high school they're interested in attending.

Roughly 400 public schools will be represented at the fair, which will be held at Brooklyn Tech High school.

"We want to make sure that our parents and our students have as much information as possible and the borough fairs," Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott said, "and the city-wide fair provides information for parents that have questions to the councilors have questions directly to the students."

The fair is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to kids from private and public junior high and middle schools.

Staff and students from various high schools will be on hand to answer questions.

Walcott said students wishing to attend one of the city's nine specialized high schools have to register by October 12. There will also be borough fairs on October 22 and 23.
