The Computer School Admissions


 Welcome, and thank you for your interest in The Computer School!
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.

If you'd like to get a glimpse into the hearts and minds of those in the CS community, please take a look at our ASM trailer. ASM stands for All School Meeting, an event through which we connect, explore our values and growth, show school spirit, celebrate our accomplishments, and so much more. Click here! Thank you! 

Middle school applications are submitted through 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 application. 

Admissions Criteria
As you may already know, the DOE has transformed the Middle School application process to a lottery system. We will discuss that at the Open Houses. Considerations for the Diversity Initiative, as well as for Students with Disabilities, will still be in place. At this time, sibling preference will not longer be part of the admissions process. We'll update you if this changes. 
If you have questions for the enrollment office, you may call the Family Welcome Center at 718 290 9387 and ask for Middle School Enrollment. You may also email them at

Pursuant to CDS3/DOE policy, a fixed percentage of seats designated for students receiving either ICT or 12:1 services. Qualifying students will match to these seats according to their ranking relative to other students in this subgroup.

While siblings of current or former students have received preferred consideration in recent years, this is currently no longer the case. If there's any change to this policy we will inform you.

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.
