Queens Metropolitan High School is a “zoned” school
This means that first priority goes to students who live in our zone. Second priority goes to students who apply and live in Queens. While not all of our students live in our zone, most of our students live in the neighborhood.
In the Fall, we hold Open Houses so that prospective students can visit our school and see if it is a good fit. Check back soon for official Open House dates.
Students wishing to attend Queens Metropolitan H.S. must fill out a High School Application as an 8th grader or first-time 9th grader. As a zoned program, priority is given to students who apply and live in the geographic zoned area of the high school. Students wishing to attend his or her zoned school, MUST list the zoned program on their application. Students who do not live in the zone can still apply to a zoned program. No enrollment is done at our school. All decisions are made by the DOE Enrollment Office in adherence to the high school admission process.
The high school admissions process is centered on two principles: equity and choice. The student-driven process enables students to rank schools and programs in an order that accurately reflects their preferences. Students can rank up to 12 programs from more than 600 programs citywide. The Department of Education conducts workshops and fairs to help parents and students learn about the high school admissions process and make informed choices.
