PS 58 is a zoned school, and we must offer seats first to children who live in our zone. Out of zone families may contact us for more information.
Our school zone will be reduced in size for new students beginning with the 2022-2023 school year. You can read more about this at the post on our homepage: https://www.ps58brooklyn.org/2020/12/15/rezoning-of-ps-58-and-local-schools-for-september-2021/
Yes, but parents of French speaking children from outside out zone may contact us for more information. We do not know at this time how the rezoning of our subdistrict will affect admission to our DLP for the 2022-2023 school year.
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.

Registration 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.
