We will need several parent volunteers for the check in process as well as some 5th grade students to help answer questions in the classrooms once the families are walking around the facilities. Keep a look out letter this month for this request. This Open House only applies to new families who have a qualifying score for their child. NOT SIBLINGS.

Families who have a student entering kindergarten for the 2017-2018 school year should also know about Kindergarten Admissions and those school options.

Know the G&T Program Types
There are two types of Gifted & Talented programs. Admission to these programs is based on your child’s test score:
- District G&T programs are offered at district elementary schools. They prioritize admitting students who live in the local communities served by the school. You are only eligible to apply to these programs if you score a 90 or above.
- Citywide G&T schools accept students from all boroughs. There is no admission priority given based on where you live. You are only eligible to apply to these programs if you score a 97 or above.
Learn more about admissions to these program types and scoring in the Gifted & Talented Handbook.
