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 list East Side Middle School among their choices on the DOE Middle School Choice Application.
Applicants will be screened based on their academic report card and performance on the most recent New York State Math and ELA tests. Contact us if your child is missing a state test score or if he/she took a non-standardized test. For the 2019-20 school year, 17% of incoming 6th grade seats will be prioritized for District 2 students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.
Please note that we do not accept applications with more than 10 latenesses or more than 10 unexcused absences. If your child has extenuating circumstances for extensive latenesses or absences, your current school must provide appropriate documentation.
