CPE 2 Admissions/Tours


CPE II is an un-zoned school, which means anyone residing in New York City may apply.  However, new DOE regulations have placed some restrictions on admissions. Pre-K and Kindergarten admissions are done by the DOE, with a mandated priority for District 4 and then District 5.  CPE II siblings always have priority.  First to fifth graders apply directly to our school. We strive to create a diverse school community that includes parents and guardians who understand and choose our philosophy.  To this end we offer tours so that families will know our community before applying.

CPE 2 Tours & Application Process for 2017-2018 School Year

If your child was born in 2012, you can apply to kindergarten at CPE II up until January 13, 2017. For Kindergarten admissions, all families, including those of students with disabilities and current pre-k students, must submit an application called Kindergarten Connect. (For information visit: http://schools.nyc.gov/ChoicesEnrollment/Elementary/Kindergarten)

It is important that families interested in CPE II come on a school tour and we will keep track of these families. Families applying to other grades are welcome on these tours as well.


Pre-K enrollment window is from: January 17, 2017 – February 24, 2017
