Dear Prospective IS 24 Student and Family,
You are scheduled to attend Myra S. Barnes Intermediate School 24 in September as a member of the class of 2026. In order for us to plan for September 2023 you will need to share some information with us so we can begin preparing for your arrival. 
We offer the following courses as Talent Classes:  Dance, Visual Arts, Band, Media, Graphic Arts and Performing Arts. A screening will not take place for a Talent class. We ask that you choose a first and second choice as a requirement. Students/Families will not be making a decision on a World Language choice and the school will make a choice of either Spanish or Italian. Talent class descriptions are in the form below.  The final decision is made by I.S. 24 as budgets, and class sizes are determined over the summer months. Our school will notify you in late August with a class placement for September and we will do our best to honor either a first or second choice of a talent class. Student programs will be available to your child on the first day of school.
Using the survey link we have provided below it is necessary that you fill it out for each student(s) who will be attending our school. Please complete the form by the end of the day on Friday, May 5, 2023. The form will close at midnight and no longer accept responses. One form per child must be submitted using this Google Form.
Please note our school will not have Honors Classes at the start of the sixth grade. We will make the determination as a school later in the sixth-grade year after we get to know the students. Our Honors program will begin in Grade 7.  Please fill out the survey on or before the deadline as this will assist us in planning our classes and notifying families and students over the summer as well.
We look forward to receiving this information from you and seeing you at a student orientation meeting on Monday, June 12, 2023 at 6:00pm.
Best of luck as you are beginning to complete the final months of elementary school and preparing for Graduation.

Per IS 7 
As the list for our middle school acceptances is firming up, and acceptance emails for your students have been sent out, we have received some calls regarding students sitting for our Honors Placement Exam. While the exam has been given multiple times since our November open house, Ms. Testa feels that there are families that did not have the opportunity to sit for this exam. We have decided to open up a make-up test date for May 13th at 8:00 am at IS 7. Please let your families that are planning to attend IS 7 Class of 2026 know that we have added this date. They need to fill out our google form to register for the exam. I have included the form for you to forward to your families.
