Grades 1 to 5

Enrolling mid-year

Families wishing to enroll their child after the start of school should contact Parent Coordinator Joan Bredthauer at Seat offers will be based on availability and enrollment priorities.

Enrolling for September 2023

There is no central application for grades 1-5. Families inquire directly to the school. Those who wish to enroll their child in these grades will be able to provide contact information on our form which will be posted here in the new year. You may also call the school. We will make offers based on seat availability and enrollment priorities. Families may pre-register for these grades in mid-June before the end of our current school year or register in late August or early September, dates to come.

Enrollment priorities, all grades

PS 58 is a zoned school and families who live in the zone have enrollment priority. Our zone changed in September 2022. Here is the current zone map. The easiest and most accurate way to see which elementary school is your zoned school is by using the School Search tool at the DOE website.

  • In NYC, priority for seat offers in a zoned school such as PS 58 is given to zoned children who have a brother or sister at our school.
  • Next, seats are offered to zoned applicants.
  • There is a priority for children who speak French but little or no English who apply to our French dual language program.

For the full list of priorities based on residence see page 42 of the NYC Admissions Guide.

Children who speak French fluently

Children who are applying to our French Dual Language program must be tested for French fluency. This is done by appointment around the time of registration. Please contact the school.

English Language Learners

Children who speak a language other than English will be assessed in person for eligibility for English Language Learner (ELL) services. ELL students who speak French will receive priority for open seats in our French dual language program. Students who not speak English or French may be eligible for English Language Learner status and can participate in small group work with our English as a New Language teacher specialist.
