Entering Upper Grades

Thank you for your interest in our school. Please click HERE for a virtual video tour. 

Admission to Clinton School for Writers and Artists high school program is screened, with admissions based on the following selection criteria:

• Class grades: English (85-100), Math (85-100), Science (85-100), Social Studies (85-100)
• Standardized Test Scores: Math Levels: 2-4; English Language Arts Levels: 2-4
• Review of Attendance & Punctuality

Per NYCDOE policy, ELA and Math test results will not be the sole, primary or major factor in admissions decisions, consistent with applicable law. Instead, multiple measures, which may include State test results, will be used to make admissions decisions for screened/audition programs.
