How to Apply to New Middle Schools or Schools with New Dual Language Programs

If you are interested in having your child apply to a new middle school or program, you should complete and return the New Middle Schools Application to your child’s elementary school by March 4, 2015

New Schools Application vs. Main Round Application

The New Middle Schools Application is separate from the main round application you completed in November 2014. If your child participates in the new schools application process, he or she will receive any new school offers in May in the same letter with his or her offer from the original application. Applicants will be able to choose between the new schools offer and the main round offer.

Additional Support 

If you have any questions, please email MS_Enrollment@schools.nyc.gov. Directory information, including translated versions of the new schools directory pages, are available online

We look forward to helping you along the way!
