Adams's amazing spreadsheet: check the odds of getting into one of your seven public schools
Dr. Adams Dudley, a Peabody Elementary parent, created an amazing spreadsheet of all the public schools. You can sort the schools by start time or by neighborhood. And he includes percentages for your chances of getting into a school in the first round. There's also an online tool that allows you to list your seven school choices and then check your odds of getting one of them. He recently updated the spreadsheet so it includes last year's enrollment data and also factors in an average of 30 percent sibling priority. You can access this cool tool on the Parents for Public Schools Web site.
