Attention families of 5th grade applicants for 2018-19:
An email was sent from ESMS on December 19th to all District 2 elementary schools with a link to register your child for an admissions interview. If you have not received the link to this Google form, please check with your child's elementary school guidance counselor, parent coordinator, or middle school coordinator.
OUR FALL 2017 OPEN HOUSE DATES (FOR ENTRY IN 2018-19)
ARE NOW COMPLETED.
5TH GRADE FAMILIES INTERESTED IN EAST SIDE MIDDLE SCHOOL
WERE ASSIGNED AN OPEN HOUSE DATE ACCORDING TO THEIR CURRENT DISTRICT 2 ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.
NO RESERVATION OR RSVP REQUIRED.
East Side Middle School (MS 114) is a screened school located in District 2 in Manhattan. In order to be considered for admission, fifth grade students residing in District 2 must rank East Side Middle School as their "1st choice" on the DOE Middle School Choice Application.
Applicants will be screened based on their academic record, performance on the most recent New York State Math and ELA tests, results of a math and writing exam at ESMS, and a short interview with a faculty member. Contact us if your child is missing a state test score or if he/she took a non-standardized test.
Please note that we do not accept applications with more than 10 latenesses or more than 10 unexcused absences.* All students who pass this lateness/absence filter, and choose ESMS first on their application, will be scheduled for an interview at the school.
(*Note: If your child has special extenuating circumstances, your current school must provide appropriate documentation).
To learn more about ESMS, prospective students and parents are invited to attend one of our Open House evenings held during the fall. Open House dates are organized according to your current elementary school in District 2. Our Fall 2017 Open House sessions (for entrance in 2018-19) will be listed in a separate folder under this ADMISSIONS tab.
If your child is an ICT student, a special information session will be held for ICT admissions.
