Admission Information

PS9 Sarah Smith Garnet (formerly Teunis G. Bergen) is located at 80 Underhill Avenue, in Brooklyn’s Community School District 13.

Most elementary students in New York City attend their zoned school. A zoned school is a neighborhood school for all students who live in a designated area, and is determined by the student’s home address. Please confirm that your student is zoned for PS9 by entering your home address in the Find a School search tool (or call 311).

Due to an increase in zoned inhabitants and growing interest in our school, fewer out of zone students are being admitted to PS9.
