Our tours are open to parents who reside in District 3. Because we have a G&T program, you do not need to live in our zone to tour PS 163. For general education, we will only have seats for zone children. We suggest touring our school only if you a) live in our zone or b) live elsewhere and have submitted a request for G&T testing (RFT). RFT applications were due on Monday, November 13th.

All tour dates follow the same schedule:
8:45  Check in – Auditorium
9:00  Brief Overview of PS 163
9:10  Tour within the school that includes: Cafeteria, Library, Gymnasium, Art and Music Rooms, Science Labs and Pre-K/ Kindergarten classes (parents will be on hand to answer questions)
9:55  Principal’s Address
10:00 Q & A

Please bring your confirmation and a photo ID to check in.
We look forward to seeing you all !
