Middle School Admissions Events

2019/20 Middle School Tours/Open House Dates
We are updating this page as 2019/20 information becomes available. Please check back regularly.
Please note that children should attend the tours with their parent/guardian and the lateness will be excused when a pass from the school visited is presented.
October 29, 2018 — Middle School Panel
PS 183 will host a Middle School Panel, on October 29th at 6:00 pm. The Panel will consist of 7th Grade students who have moved on from 183. It will be an informal Q&A session for parents and our current fifth grade students. It is a great way to learn what Middle School is really like from the Middle Schoolers who attend them!
Happy touring!
