Is bussing available for students?

  • Unless dictated by an Individualized Education Plan (for students with disabilities), bussing is not offered to middle school students in New York City's public schools. Students living between 10 and 19 blocks from the school will receive a half-fare Metrocard, and students living 20 blocks or more from the school will receive a full-fare Metrocard.

What is the uniform requirement?

What supplies will my child need?

  • Students will need plenty of pencils (and pens should they choose to use them in classes other than mathematics). 

  • Looseleaf paper will always be useful.

  • Students work often on laptops and from work that is created in the school, so a notebook may not be necessary for each class. 

  • Binders may be utilized if students find them helpful.
