The Computer School Admissions
Students must live in District 3 or currently attend a District 3 elementary school in order to apply to The Computer School. Students are not required to attend a tour or Open House in order to apply to The Computer School.
Middle school applications are submitted through myschools.nyc. If you have not been provided access to this site, please contact your current public school or the District 3 Family Welcome Center's Office of Student Enrollment at 388 West 125th Street. If you are currently enrolled in an independent school or a school outside of the district (but live in District 3), the district office will assist you in establishing a myschools.nyc application. Applications are typically due the first week of December.
The information below displays what is considered when students apply.
If you have questions for the enrollment office, you may call the Family Welcome Center at 212.342.8300 and ask for Middle School Enrollment.

CSD3 Diversity in Admissions Initiative
25% of seats will be set aside for lower performing economically disadvantaged students who are designated as eligible for two subgroups based on criteria established by CSD3 and the DOE. Qualifying students will match to these seats according to their ranking relative to other students in their subgroup.
Students without complete information in MySchools
In cases when there is missing or incomplete academic, behavioral, attendance, or NYS test score information in MySchools, we will work with students and parents as necessary.
Greetings, 5th Grade Families!
Update: We are still waiting for guidance from the DOE.
