Admissions Update

General Education

The deadline for accepting General education kindergarten placement was May 6, 2015. If you have recently moved to the PS 166 school zone please contact  Parent Coordinator Deborah Markewich by sending an email to dmarkewich@schools.nyc.gov . There is currently a waitlist for zoned kindergarten seats but your child’s name can be added to the list. We will pre-register zoned children for other grades in early June.     



If your child took the G&T test this year and qualified, you received an application with your score report.

The deadline for submitting the G&T application was April 23, 2015.

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. All placement is handles by the G&T office, not PS 166.

Placement letters will be emailed the week of May 25th. If  your child receives placement at PS 166 and you would like to accept, please check back to this site to sign up for a pre-registration appointment. To decline, please email Deborah Markewich at dmarkewich@schools.nyc.gov .
