The process of school selection isn't just an arduous one, but can have a huge impact on the development and career prospects of a child, which is precisely why a new smartphone app has been developed to aid New York families struggling with the process.
Appropriately named NYC High School Application Guide, this iOS app asks users to first input their educational and career interests, as well as neighborhood preferences. The app then throws up a range of options to help parents and their children work together to make a good decision.
By consolidating pertinent information in one place, this school selection app is particularly poised to help disadvantaged children who hail from lower-income families, as these students often end up simply selecting schools based on physical proximity due to a dearth of counselling and information.
