Middle School Information
Middle School Updates
December 14, 2021
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 accessing your MySchools.nyc account. When 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. I will provide the letters to the students as soon as they are available.
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.
The Middle School Admissions Team will provide more details around admissions when the application opens in January.
Questions/Concerns: Please email Ms. Santaliz at email@example.com
December 13, 2021
As per DOE directive, welcome letters will be mailed home to parents right before the winter recess break. The application process, though will not open until sometime in January after the new chancellor takes over and the city decides on the screened processing for middle schools.
Parents/Guardians, continue logging into MySchools and looking over the choices available for middle schools on Staten Island.
Questions/Concerns: Please email Ms. Santaliz, Parent Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Middle School Applications are not yet open. As of right now, we do not have any updates regarding the admissions timeline or the admissions methods that will be part of this year's process.
It is very important for your home address to be correct in ATS (DOE's automated system). The applications will generate the address that is registered and that will determine the "zoned school" for your child.
If you presently are living at a new address and haven't brought or emailed proof of residence to Ms. Patty or myself, please do so immediately. Acceptable proofs of residence are:
- A residential utility bill (gas or electric) in the resident’s name issued by National Grid or Con Edison and must be dated within the past 60 days.
- An original lease agreement, deed, or mortgage statement for residence.
- A current property tax bill for the residence.
- Official payroll documentation from an employer such as a form submitted for tax withholding purposes or payroll receipt.
Please fill out the Google Form if your address is still the same so that we can cross-reference to make sure there are no errors.
In the meantime you can do the following:
- Learn about middle school admissions on the DOE website.
- Find detailed information about schools that you and your child are interested in in the MySchools middle school directory.
