Department of Education (DOE)
In New York City, every child from the age of 5 to 21 who has not received a high school diploma is entitled to attend a public school in the school district in which he or she lives. The child is entitled to attend a public school regardless of the immigration status of the child, parent, or guardian. Reference to a child’s or parent’s immigration status is not to appear on any school forms and/or records.
Any student who lives in New York City may attend a public school regardless of when he or she arrived in the U.S. If a student moved to New York City in the middle of the school year, he or she may immediately register for a public school. To register, a student needs to show certain documentation, including proof of residency in the school district and immunizations.

All students are eligible to enroll in the School Meals Program. Breakfast is at no charge to all students, and lunch costs $1.50 unless you are receiving benefits such as Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF); Food Stamps; Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); or any other public assistance benefits, which may qualify your child for free meals. Children from households that meet Federal Income Guidelines are eligible for free or reduced-price meals.
