Enrollment priorities

In NYC, priority for seat offers is given to zoned children who have a brother or sister already enrolled at our school. Next, seats are offered to zoned children. At PS 58, we usually fill most of our Pre-K seats with siblings of current students. We also participate in a Diversity in Admissions program, please see the section below.

Our new school zone

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.

If your home was rezoned, the School Search tool will display your current zoned school at the top, and your future zoned school will appear further down on the page.

Diversity in admissions priorities in Subdistrict 3

PS 58 is located in subdistrict 3 of district 15, and is part of a new diversity initiative for students entering Pre-K or Kindergarten in September 2022.

The new diversity initiative gives priority for 30% of seats at our school to students who are:

  • eligible for free or reduced price lunch
  • live in temporary housing as described by the McKinney Vento Act
  • are English Language Learners
  • are residents of public housing (NYCHA)

Students in these priority categories do not need to live in our school zone.

Seat offers and wait lists

If you applied by the March 18 deadline, your child should have received an offer in May 2022, and has been placed on the wait lists of any schools or programs that you ranked higher than your offer. You will be able to see your child’s wait list status at your MySchools account. Please understand that waitlist positions are fluid and may change if new families apply after the deadline with higher priority for enrollment.
