UPDATE 9/4/2014: Please check this page again in early November 2014 for details outlining Anderson's NEW admissions eligibility criteria, admissions deadline, and Open House dates. Please do not call the school, as we will not have any details to give you before then.
The Anderson School (PS334) seeks a diverse student population and welcomes applications from students of all races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds living in any of the five boroughs. Students entering grades 6 and 7 may apply; new students are not admitted into 8th grade. This page describes the 6th grade application process; there is a separate page for 7th grade application information. For information about Open Houses and tours, please visit this page.
Students must apply directly to the Anderson School using our school’s own application. Our application is separate from the district middle school application public school students will submit to their guidance counselor, but has the same due date. We are not listed on any district’s application because we are a citywide admissions school. Students from any district or borough may apply, providing they meet the initial criteria outlined below. Applying to Anderson does not jeopardize your chances of being made an offer from any other school.
Please remember that we are a K-8 school, therefore 5th graders currently enrolled in Anderson are guaranteed a seat in our 6th grade if they choose to continue at Anderson, as long as they are in good academic standing. However, we usually expand our class size slightly in 6th grade.
If you are new to the NYC public schools (moving to NYC or switching from a NYC private school) please read this page.

Unfortunately, we do not have enough staff to handle all of our admissions phone calls - thank you for understanding.
If you have read this page and still have questions about the application process, contact Donna Smiley: DSmiley@schools.nyc.gov.
