Students applying for the September 2017 Kindergarten year must have a 2012 birth date, be a resident of NYC and must reside in the school zone. Students who live within a school’s zone are prioritized for admission to that school. If the zoned school has more zoned applicants than available seats, siblings are admitted first, then, remaining seats are offered based on a random selection from other zoned applicants. Currently, the PS 9 zone includes the area between the south side of West 85th Street and the north side of 81st Street, from Central Park to Riverside Drive. If you reside within those boundaries, PS 9 is your zoned school.

PS 9 is no longer part of a District 3 Gifted and Talented Program. No testing is required for entry.

Our current Catchment or Zone for PS 9 includes the south side of West 85th Street to the north side of West 81st Street, from Central Park West to Riverside Drive. Due to the newly approved re-zoning our current catchment or zone will be different for the 2017-2018 Kindergarten admissions.
