Time To Fill Out Those Middle School Applications
Middle school applications for the 2015-2016 school year are now available at elementary schools across the city.
How to apply
Students in 5th grade and 6th grade (for K-6 elementary schools) can apply to middle schools in their district, as well as certain boroughwide and citywide schools. Each student will receive a customized application that includes all of the middle schools he or she is eligible for. To complete the application, students should rank schools in order of preference and return the application to their guidance counselor. Private school students in 5th grade can fill out an application at a local enrollment office.
Before deciding on a school, it’s always a good idea for families to check out these middle school directories, contact schools of interest, and attend any open houses and information sessions that are offered. This middle school admissions checklist might be helpful.
Also check out the 2015-2016 Charter School Directory for information on the city’s 197 public charter schools.
- Applications must be submitted no later than Tuesday, December 2.
