It might be a little lower overall this year though because they need a lot more kids. Either way, I don’t think 423 is going to cut it but best of lucks to you!
    Hey fufu I have a question, I ranked my schools 1. Stuy 2. Brooklyn tech 3. Brooklyn Latin, my cutoff was 469 and I go to a high poverty school and I heard 469-471 was qualified for Latin discovery. So here’s my question Since all students get free lunch no matter what your income is, my parents have high income so if I qualify for 2/3 of the requirements can they still take me? I decided to reply to you because I’ve seen you on the previous 2018 discovery threads so yea hope you reply

    To be completely honest, I don’t think you qualify if you meet only 2/3 of the requirements. The point of the program, or as they say, is to cater to low income families and the “disadvantaged.”

    Discovery is for disadvantaged students so as you have high income unless you are an English Language Learner only recently in NYC you don't qualify.

    Before I full claim that I am 100% high income, nyc made lunches free for all student students no matter if they’re wealthy or not right because I get free lunch in school and I’ve had it ever since I joined school

    What if I don’t pay for lunch does that mean I’m not high income because I heard nyc made lunch free for all nyc students

    Free lunches are provided as part of a city-wide initiative and no longer as individual social services. IOWs yes lunches are free to all students. However, you're still wanted to send in a lunch form so NYC and in particular the right schools can received the right funding for it. That said, I believe free lunch has been distanced as a measure of economic disadvantedness for various means including in cases where it use to be used for some of those things.

    Another way to state this is that getting free lunch is different from qualifying for it.

    If every student now has free lunch, how would the DOE qualify you as low income or not?

    You should check the reviews/ratings for each of them. Apparently, Jackson Heights has an average of 4.8 stars, while the Jamaica version has 5 stars. You should find out why Jackson Heights is off by .2 by reading the reviews.
