2021-22 Admissions Information for 5th grade Applicants

 

Due to the pandemic/remote learning making student data from Spring 2020 inaccurate or inequitable, the NYC DOE has paused all Screened Admissions (admissions based on grades, test scores, attendance, who comes to open house) for the 2021-22 school year. 


This means for 5th grade students interested in our school: TYWLS Astoria and all NYC DOE middle schools are required to accept all applicants admitted through a lottery.  Applicants will apply through their 5th grade counselor and the MySchools online system from January 11 - February 8, 2021 and they will be placed in lotteries for schools where they apply, with the DOE aiming to match them to their highest choice.  We ask you to view our 2021-22 Open House video to make sure TYWLS Astoria is the right fit for you.
