The Middle School Admissions Process has begun!

Please know that this process consists of several steps in choosing your child's Middle School.   All 5th grade students are to complete an online application, regardless of what school you would like to be considered for. When the application becomes available, families will receive a letter from the Department of Education with instructions for the first step. We will host middle school admissions process workshops here at P.S. 128. The dates and times are to be determined.  Please click on the link below for instructions for what steps to take now.

NYC Schools Account

NYC Schools Account

The NYC Department of Education is requesting that all NYC Public School students have a NYC Schools Account.  In this account, you will be able to view your child's state exam scores, attendance, grades, reading level, Fitnessgram results, report cards, and much more.  This year you will be able to nominate yourself to be elected to the District 21 Community Education Council, and vote for others to be elected, through this account.

How to create a NYC Schools Account

You will need the Account Creation Code that in previous years has been sent home with your child if they attended PS 128 prior to Sept. 2020, and most recently mailed in October 2020, to all PS 128 families who at that time did not have a NYC Schools Account.
 You will need this code and your child’s 9-digit student ID number to create an NYC Schools Account or to add additional children to an existing account.
1. Visit https://mystudent.nyc/ and select the “Create account” link on the login page.
2. Enter your email address and create a new password.
3. Upon signing in for the first time, you will need to select and answer three security questions and
validate your email address.  

4. Enter your child’s 9-digitstudent ID number. You can find your child’s ID number on their report
card. If you do not have your child’s ID number, contact your child’s school.
5. Enter the unique Account Creation Code.  

If you need assistance or have questions about navigating your account, contact me, Rose Ann Montemurro, Parent Coordinator or call 311.
You can also learn more by visiting the NYC Schools Account webpage at
