Take the NYC School Survey at NYCSchoolSurvey.org. Deadline: June 18th
The NYC Kindergarten application deadline for the main round of offers for 2021- 2022 has passed. If your child was born in 2016, and you missed the deadline to apply to kindergarten, you can still add your child to waitlists online with MySchools. Though we cannot guarantee a seat offer, in most previous years, we are able to enroll all wait-listed zoned students.
You can rank up to 12 programs/schools on your application.
If you received a seat offer for a PS 58 Kindergarten program, you have until April 30th to accept the seat in MySchools. If you miss the deadline, you may lose the seat.
Families with seat offers have received an email invitation to create an account on our online registration platform, Operoo. If you have accepted your seat, you have until May 14 to complete all the forms on Operoo and upload all the required documents. Families who complete their child’s registration by May 14 will recieve information about their child’s class placement and teacher this summer. Families who do not complete registration by May 14 may have to wait until September to learn their child’s placement.
PS 58 is a zoned school. Families have enrollment priority at their zoned school. The easiest way to see which elementary school is your zoned school is by using the School Search tool at the DOE website.
Apply over the phone by calling 718-935-2009
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 to your child’s application, you will need to indicate how well your child speaks French.
If you indicated that your child speaks French “very well” on your recent French DLP application, and you live in our school zone, please make your child’s appointment for a fluency assessment. (If your child speaks French “only a little” or “not at all” please do not make an appointment.)
Due to our building closure on January 29th, families have two options for appointments:
The assessment is best described as a 15-minute conversation in French! Twins? Make two appointments.
Sign up for a French fluency assessment:
We look forward to meeting you.
There is an additional priority for our Dual Language program for English Language Learners (children who speak French but little or no English). Zoning requirements still apply. For a complete list of enrollment priorities, visit the DOE Kindergarten Admissions website.
Your child is automatically placed on the wait list of all schools and programs that you ranked higher than your offered school. You will be able to see your child’s wait list status at your MySchools account after offers are made in the spring.
New students entering our school in September 2022 will be affected by changes to zoning and admissions policies.
Please read this post on the rezoning for the proposed changes to the zone and admissions policies.
If you have feedback on the rezoning, please write to: BrooklynZoning@schools.nyc.gov, Superintendent Anita Skop at ASkop@schools.nyc.gov, or the Community Education Council District 15 at CEC15@schools.nyc.gov
