Did you participate in the 2019–2020 NYC high school admissions process earlier this year?

If so, then we’re happy to report that your offers are now available!

Right now, you can log into your MySchools account to see your offers. Printed offer letters will also be sent by mail to the home address you listed on your application.

Your offer letter will include:

  • Any high school and/or Specialized High Schools offer(s);
  • Info about any programs that may have placed you onto their waitlists; and
  • Guidance on what do to next, including how to get placed onto additional waitlists.

Please note that there will only be one application round. As in prior years, students who listed up to 12 high schools that they want to attend have been matched to a single school. This year, though, applicants have now been automatically placed onto the waitlists of the schools they listed above the one for which they received an offer. Also, starting Monday, March 23, students can even add themselves to waitlists for schools that they did not include on their original applications. 

Students can also track their spot on each waitlist via MySchools—they will be offered admission off waitlists if and when seats become available.

While our school buildings and Family Welcome Centers are closed, starting March 23, staff members will be available to help remotely. You can get direct support from a Family Welcome Center staff member by emailing:

Please make sure to let us know in the body of your email:

  • The best way to reach you; and
  • If you need support in another language or are a hard-of-hearing parent or guardian.

While there may be higher than usual volume, we will make every effort to respond to your request within 48 hours.

Starting Monday, March 23, families can also call our P311 service.  All you need to do is call 311 and say “schools” to be routed to someone who can assist you.

On behalf of the DOE, we congratulate New York City’s newest class of high school students!
