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
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.

a application.

We will be hosting tours in October and November!

If the tour dates fill up, additional spots will open. Also, you will be provided a link to the waitlist. 
If you are unable to visit on the dates we are hosting tours, I'll post a date on which we'll host an online Open House.
Thank you! 

From the NYC DOE Page:

Starting with Fall 2022 admissions, the DOE phased in a sibling priority for middle school applicants citywide. This means:

  • Students entering middle school in fall 2023, who have a sibling in sixth or seventh grade during
    the 2022-2023 school year, will have a priority to attend the same school as that sibling if they
    apply to it.

This priority includes any full-siblings, half-siblings, step-siblings, and/or foster siblings who live
in the same household as the applicant.

  • Applicants will keep the same priority to attend their sixth-grade sibling’s school whether you lis
    t it first or last on their application. When submitting your child's middle school application, you
    will be asked if the applicant has a sibling in sixth grade at a DOE middle school. If the answer is
    yes, you will be prompted to provide the sibling’s name and school. This information will then be
    verified with the middle school. 
  • Select programs that are admitting students through the audition or language: criteria admissions methods would not have a sibling priority, as those programs have distinct criteria for admission.
  • Remember to list programs on your child's application in your true order of preference.
    For instance, if you list your child's sibling’s school second and the applicant does not get
    into their first-choice school, they will still have a priority to attend their sibling’s school.

NEW! Multiples Priority

If you have more than one child the same age applying to middle school (ie., twins), you may choose
to submit identical applications for both children so they receive an offer to the same program:

  • If you have more than one middle school applicant connected to your MySchools account and
    want them to attend the same program, you only need to add choices to one application.
    Before submitting that application, you will be asked by MySchools if you'd like to add the same application choices to the other child’s (or children’s) application(s). 
  • If you include an audition or language: criteria program on your children's identical applications,
    and only one child is accepted to that program, then the children may receive separate offers.


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. You can read more about 2022 admissions policies and priority groups here.
