Middle School Admissions

In 2009, BSI took in three Kindergarten classes.  For the 2015/2016 academic year, those 84 former Kindergarten students will be 6th graders.  BSI will have a very limited number of seats available in 6th grade for both general education students and students with disabilities.  Interested families should be sure to rank BSI on the middle school application.

Admission to BSI will be handled by OSEPO this year, based on the following:

  • Attendance:  10%
  • Final fourth grade report card: 35%
  • NYS ELA: 17.5%
  • NYS Math: 17.5%
  • Academic and personal behaviors: 20%
Students who have not taken the 4th grade state exams will have additional weight assigned to the other factors in their composite score. They will still be considered and do not need to take an alternate test.
