You can now apply online to Kindergarten through January 12, 2018. All children who live in NYC and were born in 2013 can submit an application for the 2018-2019 school year at local public schools.

  • Find out your zoned school.
  • Find out your District.
  • Attend open houses at your zoned school and un-zoned schools in your District
  • List up to 12 schools on your application, rank them the way you want your child to attend.
  • You can list your zoned school, un-zoned schools in your District, Magnet schools and zoned schools that have taken out-of-zone students in the past. All schools are listed in the Kindergarten Directory of the Department of Education.
  • Dual Language Programs whether in zoned or un-zoned schools have specific program codes you need to list as one (or more) of the 12 options. Those programs prioritize children who speak the target language at home.

If you want to find more about elementary school options in your neighborhood, the application process, wait lists, how to rank the schools etc, attend one of our upcoming school info sessions on 1/23 or book one of our one-on-one school consulting sessions.
