A Higher Ground for Learning
We are delighted you are considering City Knoll Middle School for your child! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no in-person tours or open houses this school year. Please watch our virtual school tour video below to learn more about our City Knoll!
100% Limited Unscreened
At City Knoll Middle School, students are selected through a limited unscreened process.
What Does Limited Unscreened Mean?
The limited unscreened process is essentially a lottery for applicants with special consideration given to student who attend and sign in to an information session, school tour or open house event.

MIDDLE SCHOOL ADMISSIONS POLICY for 2020 - 2021 ADMISSIONS CYCLE
To ensure that the COVID-19 Pandemic would not have a negative effect on students during the admissions cycle, the Department of Education has made the following adjustments to the Middle School Admissions Policy for the 2020 - 2021 admissions cycle for Fall 2021 admissions:
All middle school screens will be paused for this year. This includes academic screens, school-based assessments, composite scores, and auditions. Students will be admitted through a lottery-based system.
District and geographic priorities, as well as Diversity in Admissions priorities, will still apply for those middle schools that have them.
The middle school application will open the week of January 11.
