Dear Eighth Grade Families,
Welcome Back!  I hope everyone had a wonderful summer.
I am writing to provide you with information about the high school process.  Wagner's 8th Grade High School Night will take place on September 11th at 6pm.  This will be an overview of the high school process and timeline for the next four months.  Please register on the Wagner website.  Hope to see you there.
MySchools- MySchools is the family-facing website families will use to apply to high school.  All 8th grade families should have received their "PIN" Letters during the 7th grade year.  A copy of the letter is being sent home via mail by the DOE and should arrive shortly.  Please contact me directly for a copy of your PIN letter. All families are required to have a MySchools account.  MySchools will be updated next week to include your student's 7th grade marks, attendance, and test scores.
SHSAT: There are eight NYC public schools that require students to take a test to gain admission.  Any student interested in Stuyvesant, Bronx Science, Brooklyn Tech, HS of American Studies at Lehman College, Brooklyn Latin, Staten Island Tech, HS of Math, Science, and Engineering at the City College of NY, and/or Queens HS for the Science and York College must take the Specialized High School Admission Test (SHSAT).  Families will register for the SHSAT on MySchools.  Registration begins on Monday, September 9th and closes on October 10th.    
LaGuardia: Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School requires students to audition for six studios which include dance, drama, instrumental music, technical theater, fine arts and vocal music.  Family will register for auditions on MySchools.  Registration begins on Monday, September 9th and closes on October 10th.  
High Schools Fairs: The High School fairs will be taking place on Saturday, 9/21, Sunday, 9/22, Saturday 10/5, and Sunday 10/6 from 10am-3pm.  Please visit the DOE High School website for more information.
Catholic School: Student interested in attending Catholic School must take the TACHS exam.  Registration for the TACHS exam is currently available online at or via phone (866)-618-2247. 
Office Hours: I am happy to meet with families to discuss high school options.  I hold high school office hours on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 3:45pm-5:15pm.  All appointments are on a first come, first served basis.  Office hours will begin on September 12th.  
I am looking forward to working with your family and supporting you with the high school process.  Please don't hesitate to email me and let me know if you have questions.
