KINDERGARTEN ADMISSIONS FOR 2017-2018

APPLYING TO MSC

We are a District 3, K-8 lottery school. We are not a zoned school. In a lottery school, parents fill out a form and the school holds a random drawing. Students who are selected in the lottery may choose to enroll in the school or decline the offer. Students who are not selected go on a randomly-ordered waiting list. Please do not call or stop by for information regarding your application. Calls regarding the lottery are too numerous to return and we simply cannot meet with those who stop by. Your patience is greatly appreciated!  

DISTRICT 3

District 3 covers the West Side of Manhattan from 59th Street to 122nd Street. For District 3 Contacts and more information, click here. To find your district, zoned school, and Community-Based Early Childhood Center, click here.

We do encourage families outside of District 3 to apply but please note that applications, although randomly selected, are prioritized in the following order: MSC Sibling Applications, District 3 Applications, and then outside district applications.
