PS 58 is a zoned school, and we must offer seats first to children who live in our zone. As part of our new Diversity in Admissions program which takes effect for 2022-2023, our school zone has been reduced, and 30% of seats are prioritized for students entering Pre-K or Kindergarten who:
• live in NYCHA housing
• live in temporary housing
• are eligible for free or reduced price lunch
• are English Language Learners
See this post to read more about the Diversity in Admissions program and see a map of our school zone and the larger subdistrict #3.
Out of zone families may contact us for more information.
Yes, all zoning rules and priorities apply, including the Diversity in Admissions priorities for Kindergarten applicants. Parents of French speaking children from outside of our zone may contact us for more information. Students who speak no or very little English may qualify for an enrollment priority as an English Language Learner.
Our school zone is just one small area within District 15. NYC has many school districts, and each district contains a number of school zones. The district spans many neighborhoods, but our zone is a much smaller area within one neighborhood. At PS 58, we usually fill all our seats with families who live in the school’s zone, and this year, we will also give priority to Pre-K and Kindergarten applicants who fall into one of the diversity in admissions populations described above.

Registration for the current school year for new zoned students is done in person once you live in the zone, and is ongoing throughout the year. Please call Pupil Accounting Secretary Tina Nyffler at 718-330-9322 to confirm a date for registration. We cannot register your child before your child resides here. Children can usually begin to attend as soon as they register. Children who speak French and wish to be part of the Dual Language program must also be scheduled for a French fluency assessment. Please contact Parent Coordinator Joan Bredthauer for more information.
No. The assessment is usually conducted in person as a conversation with one of our DLP teachers and is scheduled once you live in the school zone.

It is helpful to have all your telephone numbers, including home, work and cell, as well as the contact numbers of any trusted adults you designate to pick up your child in an emergency if you are not available. Please review the required documents above.
Yes. All new students must submit a Child Health Exam Form 205 to the school. You will be given the form to bring to your physician at the time of registration. Please return the completed form within the first few weeks of school.
