Middle School Offers (for grade 5 families)

This month, the students will receive their middle school offer letters. Your child is automatically on the waitlist for any program that is listed higher on their application than the program where they received an offer. For example, if your child received an offer to their third-choice program, they are automatically waitlisted for their first-choice and second-choice programs.

Save for College Program (for Kindergarten students)

Kindergarten students participating in the NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program will be able to activate and view their NYC Scholarship Accounts in May.  Once the NYC Scholarship Accounts are available, Ms. Lau will assist the kindergarten families.
