Grade 5 Families’ Middle School Admissions Process

We will update you as soon as we have guidelines from the Middle School Enrollment. To learn about Middle School Admissions please visit: Middle School Information for the most up-to-date information, translated in different languages.

NYC Schools Account

We invite you to register your child’s NYC Schools Account. This account will allow the Department of Education to share important information with you, about your child’s learning, such as: enrollment history, attendance, report card, assessment data, and guardian’s contact information. Ms. Lau will send a letter home and email the families, who have not created their accounts, with a video that details how to set up the accounts. (NYC Schools Account)

School Leadership Team Meetings

Provide ongoing evaluations of a school’s educational programs and their impact on student achievement, play an important role in school-based decision-making, and help to make school cultures more collaborative.
