The Computer School Admissions

resume-512Students must live in District 3 or currently attend a District 3 elementary school in order to apply to The Computer School.  Students are not required to attend a tour or Open House in order to apply to The Computer School.

Middle school applications are submitted through myschools.nyc. If you have not been provided access to this site, please contact your current public school or the District 3 Office of Student Enrollment at 388 West 125th Street. If you are currently enrolled in an independent school or a school outside the district (but live in District 3), the district office will assist you in establishing a myschools.nyc application. Applications are typically due the first week of December.

Admissions Criteria

We will be updating information on admissions criteria and school rankings as admissions policies in the district have changed.
You will also learn more when you attend a tour or the open house.

The information below displays what is considered when students apply, but it is in the process of being revised (in terms of the weight of each category.)

If your child does not have standardized test scores, or if you feel that we may need more information for a full evaluation, please contact us or speak to your elementary School Counselor for guidance.

If you have questions for the enrollment office, you can call 212.342.8300 and ask for Middle School Enrollment.

School Tours & Open Houses

Greetings, 5th Grade Families!

The Computer School will be hosting tours and an Open House this fall and we look forward to seeing you!
Tours take place in the morning and require a reservation.
Please use this link to register for a tour.
CS Tour Registration
Please only sign up for one date so we may accommodate as many families as possible.
CS Open House:  November 12th, Tuesday, at 6 pm.
The Open House does not require a reservation and is another chance for you and your child to visit us.
Please note: I will add more space to the tour dates and you will likely be able to visit. At the very least, you can attend the Open House on the 12th.

See you soon and thank you!


If you have questions about our admissions process, please contact Sara Sloves at [email protected]

There is large variety of report card formats and grading scales from our many sending schools, as well as differential quantity and insightfulness of commentary from individual teachers within and across schools. This information is carefully and holistically considered to determine overall scores. The two evaluation criteria are:
· Individual academic achievement
· Behavior and ability to collaborate willingly, consistently, positively and productively

Scores will be translated to a 25-point max scale based on scaled score. For non-DOE applicants, out-of-state, ERBs, Stanine scores, or other non-NYS test scores will be interpreted and scaled accordingly. In cases where standardized test scores of any kind are not available, report card and SEMS info will be increased to 65%.

Students will be evaluated on a 10-pt scale as follows: Each absence counts for 2 points, each lateness counts for 1 point.
0-5 points: 10
6-10 points: 9
11-15 points: 8
16-20 points: 6
21-25 points: 4
26-30 points: 2
Over 30 points: 0
Extenuating circumstances will be considered and scores adjusted when justified.

Students with IEPs, English Language Learners, and students from underrepresented District 3 Title I schools may receive additional consideration during the admissions process.
