If your child received a seat offer to a Kindergarten program at PS 58, here are your next steps:
Wait lists will not move until all families with current offers have accepted or declined their child’s seat, which will be after May 6th. Please be patient. You do not need to contact us. We will contact families from the wait list in order when seats become available. You can see your child’s wait list status in MySchools.
Questions? Please contact Parent Coordinator Joan Bredthauer, email@example.com or call 718-330-9322 and select “parent coordinator” from the menu.
The kindergarten application period is closed. Have a child born in 2017 and missed the deadline? You can still participate in admissions. Add yourself to programs’ waitlists with your MySchools.nyc(Open external link) account.
MySchools.nyc includes an online directory tool that allows families to explore program choices, save programs of interest and submit their application, all on the same site.

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.
Students in these categories will receive priority for up to 30% of our Kindergarten seats and do not need to live in our school zone:
If you have questions about applying to PS 58, please contact Parent Coordinator Joan Bredthauer at email@example.com.
We offer Kindergarten (taught in English) and French Dual Language Kindergarten (taught 50% in English and 50% in French). Families may list both programs on their application.
If you add French Dual Language Kindergarten to your child’s application, you will need to indicate how well your child speaks French. Our Dual Language program aims for a balanced number of English-speaking students and French-fluent students. French fluent students who speak no or little English are given priority.
A French fluency assessment is required before placement in oiur DL program. The assessment is best described as a 15-minute conversation in French. We have completed our assessments for the 2022-2023 school year.
Kindergarten seat offers were posted in MySchools on April 5th. Your child was automatically placed on the wait list of all schools and programs that you ranked higher than your offered school. You can see your child’s wait list status at your MySchools account. Please be aware that waitlists are fluid and will change if families with a higher priority apply after seat offers and waitlist notices are sent. (see Enrollment Priorities above).
Once you receive your child’s offer, you must register at the school. Registering at the offered school will ensure that your child has a seat for September and does not reduce your chance of receiving another seat offer to any waitlisted school or program before September. At PS 58, we will send an email to families with offers to our programs and invite you to create an account on our online registration system called Operoo.
If you moved to our zone after the application deadline, you may still create a MySchools account and make an application. If we have seats, your child might receive an offer. If there are no seats available, your child will be placed on our wait list. You should also email Parent Coordinator Joan Bredthauer if you move after the deadline.
