JCS created Middle School Directory
As a support to our Jaguar Elite parents, please find a JCS created Middle School Directory with information on zone, districtwide, citywide, charters, and independent middle schools in NYC. Please know that this list is not exhaustive and that there are other schools that you can research for your Jaguar Elite.

Middle School Timeline for 2020/2021 School Year
Get ready for middle school! All New York City 5th graders—and 6th graders at schools that end in 6th grade—can apply to middle school this winter.
The middle school application opens the week of January 11, 2021, and the deadline to apply is February 9.
Apply to up to 12 programs on your child’s application; list programs in your true order of preference, with your first choice at the top as #1.
You can do the following at any time:
- Use the searchable middle school directory at MySchools.nyc to explore school options.
- Check schools’ websites: find resources and learn if schools will be hosting any virtual events.
- Learn about admissions, watch our video series, and get all the latest updates at schools.nyc.gov/Middle.
- Find your school district (1-32) and learn if your child has a zoned school or schools by entering your address at schools.nyc.gov/Find-a-School or calling 311.
- You can get personalized support on- or offline, including by phone—see below.
Set up your MySchools account so you’ll be ready to apply! In mid-December 2020, welcome letters were mailed to all current 5th grade DOE public school students; this letter includes your child’s unique MySchools account creation code so you can access your account and add them to it.
January 2021 - February 2021
The middle school application opens the week of January 11. We’ll let you know when the application is open. Then, you can log in to your MySchools account to see your child’s options, save favorite programs, and build your application. Apply to middle school by February 9, 2021. Submit your application online at MySchools.nyc, through Ms. Coffin, or through a Family Welcome Center.
Spring to Summer 2021
Add your child to additional waitlists and check your place on any waitlist with MySchools. If a program can make your child a waitlist offer, they will contact you directly.
