Middle School Application Process: Upcoming Events and Deadlines

PS 10 Tour of New Voices Middle School

By special invitation, all PS 10 fifth graders will tour New Voices Middle School (MS 443).  Fifth grade teachers will join their classes.  Families are welcome to meet their fifth graders at New Voices at 9:00 on the morning of the tour.

Because every PS 10 fifth graders will visit the same school with their teachers and classmates, students will share ideas and discussion about what they notice.  Building on their shared observations of one school, fifth graders will be better prepared to talk with their families about their all of their upcoming middle school choices.

New Voices has extended a very special opportunity to PS 10 students.  PS 10 wishes to extend special thanks for making such a valuable experience possible.


Next Steps in the Process: Mid-October to Early December

The next deadline in the middle school application process is December 1, when students and their families turn in their middle school application forms.  To get ready to apply, families are working with their fifth graders to find out more about how particular middle schools might fit. 

Daytime tours and evening open houses are just couple of the ways to find out more about individual schools.  District Fifteen and other middle school directories supply lots of information, as does each schools website.  Your fifth grader may not need to visit many middle schools.  Knowing and noticing enough about several schools to decide how you would rank them is a very reasonable goal.


Individual Guidance on Applying to Middle School

PS 10’s guidance counselor, Giovanni Oramas, is available for individual families to discuss middle school choices.  To set up an appointment, please call 718.965.1170 extension 3.
