District 1 is a Choice District. This means that families that live in this zone can choose which school their child attends. We provide school tours throughout the school year. Please contact Shi Jackson, our Parent Coordinator, at 212-674-3180 to schedule a tour.

  1. All 3K, Pre-K & Kindergarten applications go through NYC MySchools and are processed per DOE admissions priorities. 

  2. Applications can be completed online, by phone or in person to the Borough Enrollment Office at 333 7th Ave. You will receive notification of your child’s acceptance through NYC MySchools or by mail.

  3. If you are transferring from another public school, you must register through the Borough Enrollment Office. 

  4. Children and siblings who reside in District 1 have priority for admission.

  5. Although we deeply value diversity, admissions decisions are not influenced by race, gender, or socioeconomic status.

  6. If your child has an IEP or Pre K support services, you must go through the Special Education Placement Office.
