Middle School Resources

The middle school application for students applying this year to enter middle school in fall 2021 opened on January 14th and will run through February 9th. 


Read the Chancellor's letter from December 18th where he talks about middle schools not using academic records, auditions, or other screens or assessments to evaluate or admit students this year.

The DOE has informed us that the Welcome Letters with instructions to create the MySchools account were mailed to families the week of December 14th. 

  • Each Welcome Letter has instructions on creating a MySchools account, and the account creation code that lets parents link their child to their account. 

  • Welcome Letters will be mailed directly to all families; elementary school staff may also provide them to families.

  • Families can continue exploring options through the MySchools Directory.

 After Welcome Letters are distributed to families, the application will then open.
  • At that time, families will then be able to access their personalized application, rank up to 12 program choices, and submit their application up until the application deadline.

  • As in past years, families may also elect to submit their application through their elementary school.

What families can do now:
  • Explore the links to D15 middle school websites, charter schools, and city-wide school websites below or through the MySchools Directory.
  • Sign up for the DOE middle school admissions email list HERE.
