G&T News

The Office of Student Enrollment welcomes you to Gifted & Talented Admissions!

Gifted & Talented testing begins in January 2016. The deadline to submit a Request for Testing form was November 12, 2015. Late submissions are not accepted.

All pre-K and non-public school families will receive postal mail or email confirmation of the scheduled testing site, date, and time by mid-December.

Students in kindergarten through grade two at public schools will find out their testing date from their current school; you will know at least two school days before testing occurs.

Prepare your students for these assessments by taking practice tests in the G&T Program Handbook. Handbooks are also available in:

    G&T Admissions: Overview

    Gifted & Talented (G&T) programs are one way that the NYC Department of Education supports the needs of exceptional students. G&T programs aim to deliver accelerated, rigorous, and specialized instruction aligned to Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS). Students entering kindergarten through third grade are eligible to participate in G&T admissions. Children must pass an assessment to be eligible to apply to G&T programs.

    There are two types of G&T programs:

    • District G&T programs. These are located in district elementary schools; they begin in kindergarten and end in the school’s terminal grade.
    • Citywide G&T programs. These admit students from all boroughs without district-based priority.

    Read the G&T handbooks and the Score Report FAQs for details about G&T programs and admissions. You can also sign up for G&T email updates.
