Share this school
This is a zoned, neighborhood school that also offers a separate gifted & talented (G&T) program. To see if your address is zoned for this school use our Elementary School Guided Search. For more information about how zones work, visit our New to NYC page and see the "Zoned schools and other options" section.
Why might this school be a good fit for you? If its your zoned school, it's close to home. If you can walk to it, that means an easier (and perhaps safer) commute. It's also more convenient to arrange playdates and to get involved with the school. You can share pick up and drop off duties with other families. Most of all, you are guaranteed to get in except in rare instances of overcrowding.
Even if this is your zoned school, you are not guaranteed a spot in the G&T class. You will need to apply to that separately. Read our Gifted and Talented page for more details.
