G&T Kindergarten/1st Grades (6/16/14)
It's not too late to have your child tested for Gifted and Talented (G&T) program placement in the 2014-2015 school year!
We offer a round of summer testing for students entering Kindergarten or Grade 1 (birthdates in 2008 and 2009 only) who moved to New York City after the original Request for Testing deadline of November 8, 2013. You must be able to provide documentation of your current NYC address and relocation date.

If your child meets these criteria, you can request testing this summer. To register for testing, you must complete the Summer Request for Testing form and submit it in person to your local Enrollment Office by Friday, June 20, 2014. Testing will take place in early July and results will be available in August. At that time, eligible students will be invited to apply for available G&T seats.

For more information, please call 718-935-2009 or visit the G&T website.

Gifted & Talented Admissions: Score Report Delivery and Open Houses Update 3/28/14

Students who took the Gifted & Talented (G&T) assessment in the winter will receive score reports and eligibility letters in early April. Students who are eligible to participate in a G&T program will also receive an application form with a list of program options. Families must submit G&T applications by April 21. Many schools hosts open houses or tours for prospective families, this information will be available on the G&T homepage . For questions, email  

Every year, the DOE determines the number of programs needed by each district based on the number of students who meet the eligibility requirements. Should your child be eligible for a NYC DOE G&T program, a complete list of sites available to your child will be included with the G&T application.

Please note: not all schools with G&T programs in 2013-2014 will have a G&T program next year, and some schools not listed may start new G&T classes in 2014-2015.

A complete list of programs available to your child will be included with the G&T application.
