We know this has been a year of great change, and we appreciate the patience and flexibility of families like you across the City.
As announced by the Mayor and Chancellor, DOE middle schools will use an open admissions method this year:
•This means that programs will pause on screening, or using applicants’ academic records, auditions, or other assessments to evaluate or admit students.
•If a school has more applicants than available seats, offers will be made using priority groups (when applicable) and random selection (a lottery).
•Other parts of the admissions process, such as zoned priorities, will remain the same.
