Admissions

Thank you for your interest in PS 452. We offer education for students from Pre-K through Grade 5. Starting in Fall 2021, we will offer a 3-K program. PS 452 is part of the NYC Department of Education diversity in admissions program. In New York City, families apply to public schools through a centralized application process managed by the NYC Department of Education. Families do not apply directly to individual schools.

If you are looking for a school for your child for the 2020-21 school year, please visit the enrollment section of the NYC Department of Education website. There, you can also learn more about the application process, special education services, gifted and talented programs (PS 452 does not offer gifted and talented programs), and sign up to receive email updates about the application process.

PS 452 to Offer 3-K Program in 2021-22 School Year

PS 452 has been selected as site for a 3-K program beginning Fall 2021. All families that are interested in applying to the 3-K program at your PS 452 should participate in the central admissions process through MySchools, since all initial offers for 3-K will be made by the Office of Student Enrollment (as with the pre-K and kindergarten application processes). 

The deadline for families to apply through MySchools to 3-K is May 28, 2021. Interested families should visit nyc.gov/3k for the latest information on applying or call 718-935-2009 . If you have questions about the 3-K application timeline or process, please reach out to ESEnrollment@schools.nyc.gov.
