Welcome to Pine Street School!
2021-2022 Virtual Admissions
Welcome Future Pine Street School Families!
Thank you for your interest in Pine Street School! Beginning with the 2021-2022 school year, Pine Street School is focusing its efforts on admissions for our preschool and elementary school only, with spaces available in our Preschool Twos/Nursery program through 5th Grade. Interested families are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
We know that many families are concerned about what school might look like in the Fall for their child. We are proud of Pine Street School's plans and meticulous preparations to have learning on-site and full-time for the coming year. Our classrooms are limited to 9 students per class, to create a safe, intimate learning environment for our students.
We are ready to meet your family online in a one-on-one or small group Admissions Information Session. Each session is tailored to your child's age of entry and is designed to give you a complete look at our school.
Your Admissions Information Session will include information about Pine Street School's:
- Dual language immersion approach
- International Baccalaureate (IB) inquiry-based education
- 3D virtual tour of our beautiful campus
- Our Safety Plans
- Time for your questions
We look forward to meeting you and your family online and to sharing our unique 21st century school with you!

Letter to NYC Parents of Preschoolers from 38 NYC Independent Early Childhood Organizations
We are 38 of New York City's independent early childhood programs, and we would like to add our shared perspective to the ongoing dialogue regarding early childhood education and in support of the decisions our parents confront in the approaching school year.

Our Teachers: On This School Year
We know that choosing a school for your family is a personal decision, and are here to help you gain a deeper understanding of what is important to you, your children, and your family as a whole. We are here to help you navigate through this process.
We will give you a complete picture of Pine Street School and make your application process smooth so you can make the best decision for your family and for your child. We invite you to explore our website, visit our school, and ask us any practical, philosophical, or admissions process questions. The school staff, our parent ambassadors, and our admissions team are here to help in any way we can.
Pine Street School operates on a “rolling admissions” basis, so we encourage you to begin the process as soon as you are ready. While our Preschool 2s/Nursery and Kindergarten are our main entry points, we do accept students in 1st through 5th Grade each year, if space is available. We welcome your call and inquiry about available spaces in any grade. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) school, we also understand that families can relocate during the school year and we therefore do consider mid-year placements.
As you get to know Pine Street School, you will meet a caring and dedicated team of highly-qualified educators and discover a unique and powerfully effective educational model that brings together the best practices of Montessori and the International Baccalaureate program within a multilingual, socially conscious, and technologically-forward learning environment. Pine Street School prepares children to be happy, successful and responsible 21st century citizens in the world.
