P.S. 62 Middle School Information

Middle School Information

Here is some initial information about this year’s admissions process.

Timeline:

  • To ensure families have enough time to learn about school options, this year’s application deadline will be later than the traditional early December deadline.
  • This information is now available on DOE website, and will be shared with families who have signed up for email alerts.
  • A more detailed timeline will be shared in the near future.
    • Later this fall, Welcome Letters will be available before the application opens.
  • Each Welcome Letter has instructions on creating a MySchools account, and the account creation code that lets parents link their child to their account.
  • Welcome Letters will be mailed directly to all families; elementary school staff may also provide them to families.
  • Families can continue exploring options through the MySchools Directory.
    • After Welcome Letters are distributed to families, the application will then open.
  • At that time, families will then be able to access their personalized application, rank up to 12 program choices, and submit their application up until the application deadline.
  • As in past years, families may also elect to submit their application through their elementary school.

Directories: A copy of printed admissions guide has been sent home with your child. 

  • As the application opens, families may learn about the admissions process on DOE website where they can both read an admissions guide and watch videos explaining the admissions process.
  • On the bottom of the DOE website, families can find the admissions guide in different languages.

Open Houses and Fairs: 

Visiting a school in person or virtually can help you learn if it may be the right place for your child. It’s also a great way to see how long the trip is from home. Check schools' MySchools pages for links to their websites, as well as for direct links to resources for prospective families, such as information about any in-person or virtual events, or video tours of the school. We recommend contacting schools directly for the most recent information, such as whether and when they will hold open houses, information sessions, and/or orientations.
