Grades 1 to 5

School Year 2021-2022

If you are a zoned family with children entering grades 1 through 5 in the current 2021-2022 school year, please contact Parent Coordinator Joan Bredthauer at jbredthauer2@schools.nyc.gov for seat availability and enrollment information.

Enrollment Priorities, all grades

PS 58 is a zoned school and families who live in the zone have enrollment priority. Our zone has changed for new students entering in September 2022. Here is the new 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.

Pre-registration for families arriving in June 2022

The first opportunity to enroll will be mid-June 2022. Families who wish to be contacted when registration opens should submit this form to request registration information. We will contact you in June with instructions to upload the required documents using our Operoo automated form system. Offers will be made based on review of your documents, enrollment priorities, and seat availability. For the French dual language program, see Children who speak French, below. Class assignments will be sent to registered families in late August or early September.

Families arriving in July and August 2022

Please complete this form to request registration information. In late August, we will send you instructions to complete our forms and upload the required documents through our online portal, Operoo. We do not expect to be capped in any grade, but please understand that we cannot guarantee a seat this far in advance of registration. Offers will be made based on review of your documents, enrollment priorities, and seat availability. For the French dual language program, see Children who speak French, below.

Families may also register on the first day of school, date to be announced.

If you need more information, contact Parent Coordinator Joan Bredthauer at jbredthauer2@schools.nyc.gov.

Changes to our zone and admissions for School Year 2022-2023

Please read this post on the rezoning for the approved changes to the school zone. (The Diversity in Admissions priorities for enrollment do not apply to new families unless they are applying for Pre-K or Kindergarten.)

To locate your zoned school, use the Find a School Tool at the NYC DOE website.

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 in person in mid-June or late August. Please make sure to let us know that your child speaks French when you complete the request to register form. We will contact you to set up an assessment.

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.
