Admissions Update

General Education

Kindergarten Connect placement letters are scheduled to be sent on Tuesday, April 14th. If your child receives placement at PS 166 and you would like to accept, please sign up for a pre-registration appointment as soon as possible  HERE.  

You must bring your child and you must have an appointment to pre-register. Walk-ins cannot be accommodated.

If you wish to decline placement, please contact Parent Coordinator Deborah Markewich at dmarkewich@schools.nyc.gov and state your child’s name and where he/she will attend school in September.

We will begin pre-registering zoned students for grades 1-5 in May. Please check back to this site later in the month for more information.


If your child took the G&T test this year, you should have recently received a score report and if he/she qualified, an application.

Because of the scheduling of spring recess and state tests this month, there will be no further G&T tours before the application deadline. This information was stated on our website well in advance of our tours in February and parents of children who took the test were encouraged to attend a tour at that time. The deadline for submitting the G&T application is April 23, 2015.

Later in the year, as long as the timeline allows, we will have a tour for parents of children who have been offered a G&T seat but never toured the school.

PS 166 will have 50 seats for kindergarten students and 6 seats for first grade students. At this time we do not expect to have any seats in 2nd or 3rd grade but that may change if current students move.

Please keep in mind that while a score of the 90th percentile or above is a qualifying score, for the last several years only students who scored in the 99th percentile have been offered kindergarten seats at PS 166.
