    High School Applications Go Digital

    Beginning this fall, the Department of Education is offering an online application system, “MySchools”, for high school admissions. This means that families of 8th graders will be able to submit their high school applications online. Parents will also be able to register their children online for the SHSAT and LaGuardia auditions. We will no longer send you a paper HS application and a SHSAT/LaGuardia registration form.

    In order to get an access to MySchools, parents must create an account with a valid email address. We will be sending home access information (website, PIN) as soon they are available.
