MS Update - Application process 2021-2022


·       The middle school application will open during the week of January 11, 2021. Families and school staff will be notified when the application opens. 

·       The deadline for families to submit their middle school application will be the week of February 23, 2021

·       Middle school offers will be available to families and school staff in the spring. As in past years, middle school staff will be able to preview offers before they are released. 


Admissions Methods: 

As announced by the DOE, public middle schools will use an open admissions method this year. This means that programs will pause on screening, or using applicants’ academic records, auditions, or other assessments to evaluate or admit students.

This will affect programs with a screened, composite score, or talent test admissions method. If a school has more applicants than available seats, offers will be made using priority groups (when applicable) and random selection (a lottery). 

Middle school applications will open on January 11. Families can use MySchools (myschools.nyc) to submit their applications.
