Step 2: If you are entering grades 6-12, you MUST complete this important survey.

You will be asked to choose course electives and language preferences which we need in order to create your class schedule. 6th graders do not have electives or language preferences, but we do need the other information. Please have your latest report card or transcript available to upload. Students entering in K-3 do NOT need to fill out this form.

All students who are new to the NYC Department of Education will have a brief language screen with a teacher to determine their English language proficiency.
