PS 166 is a zoned school. Historically we fill our available seats with students who live in our zone; therefore if you do not live in the zone, the chance of receiving a placement in our school is extremely remote.

Your zoned school is determined by your home address. To find your zoned school in District 3, check the District 3 Zone Map or plug your address in to School Search.

GENERAL Education / ICT

PS 166 has an Integrated Co-Teaching (ICT) class on every grade level. ICT classrooms include students with and without disabilities and have two teachers, a general education teacher and a special education teacher.The teachers work together throughout the day to adapt and modify instruction for special needs children and make sure that the entire class has access to the general education curriculum. Students with special needs may be in an ICT classroom all day or for a portion of the day. The number of students with disabilities in an ICT classroom  does not exceed 40% of the total class register.
Parents of children with special needs must submit an application during the application window.
