7th Grade Admissions

UPDATE 11/14/2014: We have posted information about our Open Houses here. Please check this page again in January 2015 for details outlining Anderson's new admissions process and deadline. Please do not call the school, as we will not have any details to give you before then. 

On March 31, 2014, the New York State Legislature passed a law prohibiting school districts from making “any student promotion or placement decisions based solely or primarily on student performance on the state administered standardized English language arts and mathematics assessments for grades three through eight.” The New York City Department of Education is requiring schools to develop new admissions processes that comply with the new legislation. We have not finished developing our process for admission into seventh grade and once it is finished, it will need to be approved by the DOE. We hope to post the information on this page in January.

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 7th grade application process; there is a separate page for 6th 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.
Students from any district or borough may apply.

Most years, a number of our students are accepted into Hunter College High School, which begins at 7th grade. We never know how many 7th grade seats are available until those students decide whether or not to attend Hunter (in late March.) 

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.
