Admissions » Kindergarden

Kindergarden

According to the NYCDOE children who turn 5 during the current calendar year (January 1st – December 31st) are eligible for admission to Kindergarten. Students who did not attend Kindergarten and are age appropriate for 1st grade (will turn 6 during the current calendar year – January 1st –December 31st) will be admitted to 1st grade.

The Office of Student Enrollment oversees the Kindergarten application process which is held from the beginning of January to the beginning of February. Families will receive notification about a placement offer in early April and be asked to schedule an appointment at PS 6 for pre-registration. Please understand families no longer submit applications directly to schools. Families are to apply on line, over the phone, or in person at any of the enrollment offices beginning in January. Admission is not first-come, first-served. All applications received by the deadline will be treated the same by the Office of Student Enrollment based on the admissions priorities outlined below:

Standard Admissions Priorities for Zoned Schools

1. Students residing in the zone, who have a sibling at the school in grades K-5 for the upcoming school year;
 
2. Students residing in the zone, who do not have a sibling at the school;
 
If space allows, students residing outside the zone may also be admitted, in the following priority order:
 
3. Students residing in the district, who have a sibling at the school in grades K-5 for the upcoming school year; (parents are typically notified by the Office of Student in Enrollment in late August if a seat is available)
 
4.Students residing outside the district, who have a sibling at the school in grades K-5 for the upcoming school year;
 
5. Students residing in the district, who currently attend the school’s pre -kindergarten program
 
6.Students residing outside the district, who currently attend the school’s pre -kindergarten program;
 
7. Students who reside in the district, other than those in (3) and (5) above;
 
8. Students who reside outside the district, other than those in (4) and (6) above.
 
*Historically we fill our available seats with students who live in our zone; therefore if you do not live in the zone, the chance of receiving a placement in our school is remote.
