Children enter PS/IS 366: Washington Heights Academy through the citywide application processes established by the New York City Department of Education.
Families applying for PreKindergarten, Kindergarten or Middle School must do so through the NYC DOE's centralized process by listing Washington Heights Academy as a choice on their DOE applications.
In accordance with NYC DOE policy, children who are currently enrolled in WHA’s PreK program receive priority (after siblings) in the admissions process.
Grade 5 students currently attending Washington Heights Academy have priority to continue to Grade 6 at the school. In order to receive this priority, current WHA fifth graders must rank PS/IS 366 as one of their choices on the Middle School Choice Application.
Families applying for Grades 1-5 must fill out a separate application at the school. A Grade 1-5 waitlist will be generated through an in-house lottery process. Parents will be notified if a space becomes available.
Please contact the school at 212-304-3320 to learn about information sessions and school tours.
