Gifted & Talented
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.
All students who will be entering kindergarten through third grade for the 2018-2019 school year can sign up to test for G&T programs. Get ready by taking these next steps:
- Read the 2018 Gifted & Talented Handbook: Learn about G&T Admissions, find programs that interest you, and prepare for the G&T test with practice problems.
- Attend an Elementary Admissions Event in October: Come to an event in your district to learn about G&T and Elementary Admissions.
- Sign up to take the G&T test by Monday, November 13.
Families who have a student entering kindergarten for the 2018-2019 school year should also know about Kindergarten Admissions and those school options.
