5th Grade Applicants (Prospective 6th Graders)

Due to the pandemic/remote learning making student data, the NYC DOE has paused all Screened Admissions (admissions based on grades, test scores, attendance, who comes to open house) for the following year for incoming 6th grade


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 must live in the borough of Queens.  Applicants will apply through their 5th grade counselor and the MySchools online systethey 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 current year Open House video and these slides below to make sure TYWLS Astoria is the right fit for you.
