High School Information

Dear 7th grade family:
Maurice Frumkin from NYC Admissions Solutions (former DOE high school admissions official) has provided a free high school admissions checklist for 7th grade families you can use to put yourself in great position for next year. Simply download the checklist here or it is attached.
We hope this helps you as you start to think about high school admissions for your child!


Students who tour high school during the school day must return to school with a note from the high school visited. This note must be given to his/her homeroom teacher for attendance purposes. Attendance can only be changed to reflect a tour (non-absence) if the student provides us with documentation.  Any questions, please contact the Main Office at 917-441-1236.
