The New York City High School Admissions Study is made up of a group of researchers at New York University, Princeton University, Columbia University, and Seton Hall University. The study develops new tools to help 8th grade students in NYC find their high school match, and conducts research on the effectiveness of these tools. In 2015-16, the research team delivered informational interventions in 170 NYC middle schools to assist low-income students with the high school choice process. Together, these interventions reached more than 20,000 New York City middle school students. In the 2016-17 school year, the team mailed toolkits to more than 400 NYC middle schools, which included web resources, as well as printed materials for school counselors, and 8th grade students and their parents. The study is continuing in 2017-18, during which the team will mail informational interventions to these school counselors.
