School Tour Need-To-Know

To begin your school tour on time you should arrive at least 15 minutes early. Enter through the main gate on 97th St. between Amsterdam and Columbus Ave. and then through the first set of doors on your left.


You'll need to check in with the School Safety agent and let them know you are there for the school tour. Please have your valid I.D. available to gain admittance to the school.

You will be directed to the cafeteria where your tour will begin with a brief introduction to our school and some key highlights about PS 163. Your tour will be given by a volunteer PS 163 parent.  There will be opportunities throughout the tour to ask questions about the school so feel free to ask as many questions as you like.

If you have any questions about our school tours before your scheduled tour date please contact our Parent/Teacher Coordinator Emily Little at


We look forward to seeing you soon.
