If you have a child applying to 3-K, pre-K, kindergarten, or Gifted & Talented, they have priority to attend their older sibling’s school or program. You can use MySchools, our online application system, to make sure your child’s application gets sibling priority!
Get Sibling Priority on Your Application
1. Go to MySchools.nyc and set up an account.
Add all of your school-age children to your MySchools dashboard.
Then enter the required information for each child. Be sure to select that they attend an “NYC public school” and list their current school or program.
3. Complete your child’s 3-K, pre-K, kindergarten, or Gifted & Talented application.
■■ Be sure to add the older sibling’s school or program (if available) to your child’s
■■ If your child’s sibling is on your dashboard in MySchools and you have applied to
the sibling’s current school or program, your child’s application will be eligible to
get sibling priority.
