If you’re an eighth grader, or you want to feel as stressed out as an eighth grader, head to Brooklyn this weekend for the city’s annual high school fair. The event, which takes up multiple floors at Brooklyn Technical High School, is almost always a hot and sweaty affair (though this time around it may be a damp and mild affair). It features principals, teachers, and uniformed students from more than 400 high schools, who hawk applications to overwhelmed middle schoolers and their parents. The fair takes place on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The fair is just one step on the path to getting into high school. Check out the entire maze here.
