Admissions Process to Middle School and Upper School
At Quest to Learn, like all District 2 Choice schools, we use our own selection criteria to enroll students we think will be the best fit for success with our innovative and hands-on Quest curriculum.
Some NYC schools require specific test scores, some use writing samples as a selection tool, and others require an audition in order to be accepted. At Quest, Informed Choice means that students and families must demonstrate an understanding of Quest’s unique approach to curriculum and that they have actively chosen Quest as the right school for their child by attending an open house.
At Quest, we believe that students and families who are excited by and want to participate in our unique curriculum create a vibrant learning environment and engaged school community.
After researching and selecting schools, students submit their ranked choices of schools to the Department of Education, which then matches students to schools.
