District 23 Kindergarten Admissions
In November 2012, the District 23 Community Education Council approved a plan to make District 23 an elementary choice district. This means that there are no longer any zoned elementary schools in District 23.
Families in District 23 may submit an application in the same way as other districts in New York City. Please see the Kindergarten Admissions page for more information on how to submit an application. For more information on District 23 Kindergarten Admissions, review the District 23 Elementary School Directory below.
The District 23 Kindergarten Fair will be held on Thursday, December 5 from 5-7 at
P.S. 156 Waverly

2. Out-of-district students with a verified sibling in the school who will be in grades K-5 in September 2013;
3. In-district students currently attending the school's pre-kindergarten program;
4. Out-of-district students currently attending the school's pre-kindergarten program;
5. In-district students other than those in (1) and (3) above;
