ADMISSIONS UPDATES FOR 2022-2023
See our Virtual Tour webpage for Tour information!
Update on Middle Grades Admissions (1.12.2022):
Application Deadline: The application deadline is Tuesday, March 1. Visit https://www.myschools.nyc/ to log in.
Admissions criteria: The pause on academic screens will continue for students entering middle school in Fall 2022.
Sibling Priority: Starting with Fall 2022 admissions, the DOE will phase in a sibling priority for middle school applicants citywide. This means:
Multiple Sibling Applicants: If a family has more than one child the same age applying to middle school (ie., twins), that family may choose to submit identical applications for those students so they receive an offer to the same program.
Families should be thinking about which schools will be a good fit for their child in terms of culture, course offerings, etc. Families may list up to 12 middle school programs in their true order of preference on the application.
Our school is NOT AFFILIATED with the NEST Autism Spectrum Disorders Program at NYU. Please visit the NEST ASD webpage for more information.

ADMISSIONS RUBRIC - 2022-2023
Last admissions cycle, the New York City Department of Education (DOE) middle schools did not use academic records, auditions, or other screens or assessments to evaluate or admit students. Offers were made using a random lottery.
We do not currently have any information regarding the admissions rubric for 2022-2023.
You will receive your child’s Middle Grades offer from the Department of Education in March. You will be able to log into your MySchools account to see the results, and you will receive a letter by mail. Visit the Department of Education’s Middle School Admission webpage to learn more.
We will post Orientation information for admitted students on the Orientation webpage.
Students who live in Manhattan below 93rd st, and are in grades K-6, MAY be eligible for free yellow bus transportation.
Visit the Transportation webpage for more information. All students who do not ride the public yellow bus will be issued a student Metrocard.
