Grades 1 to 5


Every child in New York City has the right to a free, appropriate, public education. To provide that, our school serves students from pre-kindergarten to grade 5 in a variety of classroom settings.

Students with siblings who currently attend PS9 and/or who reside within our school zone receive priority for available seats.

Dual Language

Dual Language Spanish - English Immersion (DL) classes are offered in every grade at PS9.  If your student is entering grades 1 through 5 and is interested in participating in this program, please make a note of that on the application.

Students may be screened for eligibility. Students whose native (or home) language is Spanish are given preference in admission.

How to Apply

The application process for students entering grades 1 to 5 is done at PS9 by our Secretary for Pupil Accounting . Applications for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten are done through the DOE.

For the current school year, apply online by filling out this form. Complete a separate application for each student and indicate if they are a twin. 

New Student Application Forms are also available in our school’s main office. Completed applications should be delivered to the main office in person. 

Applications may also be submitted via fax machine to (718) 622-2961. If you do choose to fax the application, please confirm that it was received by calling the main office at (718) 638-3260.
