Can my child attend PS 452 if not in the school zone?
Admissions to PS 452 are based on a set of priorities from the DOE and are not on a first-come, first-serve basis. Admission priorities are listed in the DOE website.
Is there any way to get a sense of the school if I cannot go on a tour?
We are unable to give private tours. To see a movie and slide show about our school visit the tab About PS 452. You are welcome to attend a PTA meeting which are open to the public. For a list of PTA meetings, please visit our website at www.ps452.org and email the parent coordinator which PTA meeting you would like to attend at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What's my zoned school?
Your zoned school is determined by your official home address, not your place of employment. Most students attend kindergarten at their zoned school. Find your zoned school by entering your address in the school search tool or calling 311.
How do I register my child for grades 1-5?
If you are in our zone and you would like to register your child, please send an email to email@example.com with your child’s name, date of birth, and a contact number. The parent coordinator will call to set up an appointment.
