G&T Testing

Dear Ps150,

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.

Thank you,

Gifted & Talented Admissions Team
