Read the 2017 NYC Kindergarten Directory to learn more about Kindergarten Admissions.
Admission is based upon residency in PS 8’s zoned neighborhood.
New First through Fifth Grade Students
New students who live in PS 8’s zoned neighborhood and will be in first through fifth grades for the 2016-17 school year should come to the lower school office and and speak to Ms. Cloud to register. Bring documentation of the student’s age and proof of residence when you come to pre-register. Click here for a list of required documentation.
Learn more about the elementary school enrollment process on the New York City Department of Education (DOE) website.
As a magnet school, enrollment is not limited to traditional zoning constraints; however, seats are given to zoned students first. All children living outside the zone, including siblings of current non-zoned students, must fill out a magnet application form, available in the main office. Decisions about magnet school placement are made by lottery when spaces are available. Given the current enrollment, few magnet seats have been allotted the past few years.
New Middle School Students
All fifth graders who have submitted the Middle School Application in fall will receive notification letters in April, which will have your middle school match for next September.
If you just moved to New York City and are not yet enrolled at a school for the 2016-2017 school year, learn how to enroll on the New Students page.
