Grade 5 Families-Middle School Update
We are reaching out to share some important updates about middle school admissions for students applying this winter and entering middle school in fall 2022.
The middle school application will open the week of January 10, 2022, and the deadline to apply will be the week of February 28.
This week, middle school welcome letters will be available! This personalized letter includes information on how to access your MySchools.nyc account. When you're logged in to your account, you can use MySchools to explore your child's middle school program options and save favorite programs. When the application opens, you will also use MySchools to apply.
All current fifth grade public school families will receive their child’s welcome letter in the mail later this week. If you have not received your welcome letter in the mail, you can obtain a copy from your Parent Coordinator, Ms. Lucy at email@example.com
Private and parochial school families can request your child’s welcome letter from a Family Welcome Center.
The DOE will continue to pause screening (using students’ academic records in admissions) for students entering middle school in fall 2022. For middle school programs with more applicants than seats, offers will be made using admissions priorities and random selection.
This year, arts-based programs will resume holding auditions.
MySchools will reflect these updates within the coming week.
We will provide more details around admissions when the application opens in January. Right now, you can read more about middle school admissions at schools.nyc.gov/Middle and learn about specific schools at MySchools.nyc.
