Welcome to PS 158
THE BAYARD TAYLOR SCHOOL
Principal Dina Ercolano
Our Mission Statement
PS158 believes in equity, inclusion and developing lifelong learners.
PS158 welcomes all who enter our safe, joyful and dedicated learning community. We believe in the individual and limitless potential of each of our community members and we work to support their understanding of themselves and others. At PS158 it is our mission to affirm people’s multiple identities, including their racial and cultural identities and stories.
The kindergarten application will open from December 7, 2022 - January 20, 2023. If your child was born in 2018 and lives in New York City, they are eligible to attend kindergarten in fall 2023.
If your child is currently enrolled in Pre-k in PS 158 you still need to apply for Kindergarten. Students DO NOT automatically move from Prek to Kindergarten.
