MILWAUKEE, Jan. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Representatives from dozens of area schools, school networks, and organizations will be on-site to help as families explore more than 250 total educational options at a school fair, which runs 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19 at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee.
The event is free and aimed to help parents learn about and choose the right fit for their students from a wide variety of different schools, including both public and private. Parents are encouraged to bring questions for school representatives.
