Middle School Information

 Welcome to Middle School Admissions!

 Middle School Results Letters are now available! 

If you submitted a New Middle School Application in March, your results letter may also include a match to a new middle school program. You will have to choose which match you'd like your child to attend if you get two matches.

Most middle schools will have an orientation or other event to welcome families. You do not need to register at your middle school; the registration process is complete by receiving your results letter. 

If you just moved to New York City and are not yet enrolled at a school for the 2016-2017 school year, learn how to enroll on the New Students page.
