It’s time to learn where your middle school-bound child is attending school next fall!

If your family participated in 2022 NYC middle school admissions earlier this school year, we are happy to report that your child’s middle school offer is now available!

Visit MySchools to view your child’s offer letter— it will include basic information about their program offer, as well as a listing of any schools where your child has been automatically waitlisted, if applicable. If you did not opt for paperless messaging, a printed copy of your child’s offer letter will be mailed to their home address in a few weeks.

There is nothing you need to do to accept your child’s middle school offer.


There are two ways that your child can be on programs’ waitlists:

Automatically, before waitlists open

If your child did not receive an offer for their first-choice program, they are automatically placed onto the waitlist for any program listed higher on their middle school application than the program listed in your child’s offer letter.

Optionally—added directly by parents/guardians while waitlists are open

If you would still like your child to be considered for admission to another program, you can have them waitlisted through MySchools. If a school can make your child a waitlist offer, they will contact you directly—you would have one week to accept or decline this new offer.

To learn more about waitlisting in NYC public schools, visit the DOE’s official Waitlists page.
