Middle School Selection Process

 Choices gif 

Middle School Application Deadline is December 2, 2019!

If you haven't made your Middle School Selections yet, You NEED TO START!!!

"In your child's personalized online application, you will be able to see and explore every middle school program that they are eligible to apply for and, if they get an offer, to attend. From these options, you can add up to 12 middle school programs to your child’s application. Add the programs that interest you and your child the most and rank them in your true order of preference in the application.

  • Consider adding the programs where your child has an admissions priority or guarantee, such as their zoned school(s) or continuing school. You do not have to place any of these programs as your first choice to keep your priority.
  • Make a plan on how to rank the choices.    "                                -schools.nyc.gov

Here are a few steps to help guide your thinking:

Step 1. Look up the names of the schools located in your area.

Step 2. Do some research about the schools by looking up their websites for more information about the schools.

Step 3. Find out if there are any tours or open houses you can attend.

Step 4. Create a list with the reasons why you are interested in the school
