Middle School Admissions

Middle School acceptance letters have been distributed to all graduating 5th grade students. The appeal round is now open until May 4th. Please submit any appeal requests to your school by May 4th!

The middle school application period for the 2016-2017 school year is now closed. If you submitted an application, you should have received an application receipt.

Some middle school programs require next steps:

  • Screened schools that use an audition or test to evaluate students will reach out to applicants who meet their criteria over the winter to invite them to come in for an assessment.
  • Your elementary school will distribute test tickets to students who submitted a Request for Testing (RFT) for I.S. 239 Mark Twain in December. Test tickets will be mailed to private school students.
  • You will receive an application in February 2016 for any new middle school opening in your district. You do not have to apply if you are not interested.

Your current school will distribute middle school admissions results letters, including any new school match, in late April 2016.
