2023 Newark Enrolls All Schools Fair 
2023 Newark Enrolls All Schools Fair 

The Newark Enrolls All Schools Fair held on Saturday, November 4th proved to be a resounding accomplishment with a turnout of over 2,000 parents and students at Newark Vocational High School (NVHS). The school teams displayed remarkable dedication, as both staff and students eagerly participated in recruitment efforts. The event successfully combined celebratory elements and informative resources, including visually appealing school booths, live music, interactive sessions with high schools, and delectable refreshments provided by the talented NVHS culinary staff and students. It served as an exceptional start to the new enrollment cycle.

The annual All Schools Fair remains a critical aspect of the overall Newark Enrolls recruitment strategy. For example, while public school enrollment across the nation has experienced a downward trend since the pandemic, Newark Public Schools is distinguished by having the 5th largest increase in enrollment among the nation’s largest public school systems.

A sincere thank you to the Enrollment Team for the execution of this event, school staff who provided superb displays for students and families, and to the charter schools and Pre-K Providers who participated in this year’s fair. The success of this event was made possible by the unwavering commitment of the participants and the selfless contributions of staff members from across the District who volunteered their time and effort.

Since the launch of the enrollment window at 3:00pm on November 4th, a total of 10,057 applications have been submitted for the SY 24/25 enrollment cycle.
