UPDATES 2021-2022  

We are happy to announce that the high school selection process is well underway. Welcome letters have been mailed home to our families. They are currently available, and registration is now open for the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT), the exam that determines admission to the eight testing Specialized High Schools.All current 8th grade students can apply to high school and test and/or audition to apply to the Specialized High Schools during the 2021-2022 school year. I know this is an abundance of information so please take the time to read it through. 


Helping Parents Log Into MySchools:

·         Welcome letters are in the mail to our 8th grade families.  Each personalized welcome letter includes an overview of high school admissions, including how to use the DOE’s online school directory and application system, MySchools.nyc

·         For families who have never used MySchools before, your personalized welcome letter will help you set up your MySchools account and add your child using their unique account creation code.

·         For families who have already used MySchools in a previous year, you just need to log in! You can re-set their MySchools password if needed. If a family logs into MySchools and does not see their child’s name on the Dashboard page, that’s okay--you just need your welcome letter and to follow the instructions there.

Register students for the SHSAT:

·         Registration is now open for the SHSAT, and the deadline to register is November 15, 2021. Registration is not first-come first-served; all students who register by the deadline will be able to take the SHSAT. 

·         Once logged into the MySchools site (myschools.nyc), families can register their child for the SHSAT. When the family completes their SHSAT registration, they will receive a confirmation email with the registration receipt.


Preparing families for the SHSAT. Learn more and take practice tests on this website.

The SHSAT Test will be administered at our school location in December, 2021. Date to be announced.  The SHSAT is NOT required for every student. It is simply an available option for anyone student who would like to take it.
