HOW TO APPLY
Thank you for your interest in the Middle Grades at NEST+m.
At NEST+m, intellectualism, inclusivity, collaboration and exploration within and beyond our school community enable our students to lead lives filled with learning, discovery and purpose.
NEST+m Middle Grades is a city wide school, open to applicants from all boroughs of New York City. Applicants can rank NEST+m Middle Grades in the list of schools in the MySchools application portal. Our school's DBN number is 01M539.
Applicants should NOT send any supporting application materials to the school as they cannot be considered as part of their application.
NOTE: This year we anticipate having as few as 10 seats available, as we have an unusually large 5th grade moving up into 6th grade.

ADMISSIONS RUBRIC - 2021-2022
For this admissions cycle, the New York City Department of Education (DOE) middle schools will not use academic records, auditions, or other screens or assessments to evaluate or admit students this year. Offers will be made using a random lottery.
You will receive your child’s Middle Grades offer from the Department of Education in March. You will be able to log into your MySchools account to see the results, and you will receive a letter by mail. Visit the Department of Education’s Middle School Admission webpage to learn more.
We will post Orientation information for admitted students on the Orientation webpage.
Students who live in Manhattan below 93rd st, and are in grades K-6, MAY be eligible for free yellow bus transportation.
There were also parent-organized (paid) bus routes for students in grades K-12 who live in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. These routes were suspended due to the pandemic. Once most students are back in person, these routes MIGHT be reinstated. Visit the Transportation webpage for more information.
It is too early to determine if either of these options are available for September 2021. We cannot respond to any transportation questions until mid-summer 2021. Please assume that you will need to make transportation arrangements for your child to travel back and forth to school.
All students who do not ride the public yellow bus will be issued a student Metrocard.
