Zoning:

Please note that PS 29 is a zoned school and only takes zoned students. If you are not sure whether you live in our zone, the quickest way to find out is to visit this link https://www.schools.nyc.gov/find-a-schoolYou can also call the school at 718-330-9277

We are extremely conscientious and strict about address verification. Your zoned school is where your child’s primary residence is. It is not an apartment you own or rent but do not reside in at the time of application/registration or your place of employment. It is not a temporary apartment you have rented for a few months with the intention of registering your child at PS 29. These are all prohibited by Chancellor’s Regulations. We are scrupulous in address verification due to the fact that over the last few years we have had many more applicants than seats available and we must retain the integrity of the process for legitimately zoned families. We retain the right to do address investigations and abide by the results of those investigations.
