MS Choice Process Tips
  • The MS Directory is a great reference for what options exist for each district
  • Students should attend the MS Fair, open houses and other events to learn more about schools they are interested in
  • Students should consider travel distance when ranking schools on the application
  • There is no sibling priority for middle school
  • There are additional options (school-based application processes - district, borough, or citywide) listed in the back of the directory
    • These will not show up on the MS Choice application and interested students should reach out to these schools directly
