View Full Version : Manhattan-Downtown Avenues inundated by applications

I saw from an article the other day that Avenues received over 1000 applications for early admissions for fall 2012. That's really impressive. I'm so curious who are the families that ended up applying and which grades saw the most demand.

1000 apps for 15 grades? That doesn't seem "inundated" to me. That's not even enough to fill the 1600 spots the school is supposed to have from preschool to high school.

I think Avenues is taking apps for just preschool to 9th grade, no? And as far as I know, the 1000+ apps are just for early admissions. What I'd love to know is how many early admissions spots were available and what criteria they used to evaluate applicants.
