High School Admissions & Open Houses


9/14/18 8th grade families: If you’re applying to high school this fall, you’ll get a letter in the mail next week with instructions on how to create a MySchools account. MySchools is both an online directory of NYC public schools and a personalized application.

As soon as you log in to your MySchools account, you can start exploring NYC public schools. If you’d like to apply to the specialized high schools, use MySchools to schedule your Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) or register to audition for LaGuardia High School by October 11, 2018. You’ll also use MySchools to apply to high school.

If you don’t get your instructions in the mail next week, speak with your school counselor for help.
