General Admissions Information

John Jay School for Law is a part of the Ed-Opt model that many NYC DOE schools use. This means that about half of our incoming 9th graders are selected randomly, and the other half are selected based on their standardized test scores and attendance. The test scores are used to select students who performed at all levels, ensuring that our incoming students have a variety of academic strengths and areas of need. Prospective students are also ranked based on their attendance in middle school. If a student decides John Jay School for Law is where they want to attend high school, their best chances of joining us in the fall is to list us as their top choice.
