Grade 5 Families
Current fifth grade students will receive a personalized welcome letter later this fall or winter; this letter will include information on how to access your MySchools account.
The welcome letter includes instructions to create a MySchools account including a unique creation code.
We highly recommend that all families create a MySchools account because...
o You can submit your child's middle school application through MySchools.
o It is a great tool to research NYC middle schools. You will receive your child's middle school results on MySchools the moment it is released to families.
