Visiting Grades K-5

Evening Open Houses for parents of students entering Kindergarten-3rd grade in fall 2014.


Our Open Houses took place on Tuesday, April 8th
 (309 parents attended) and Thursday, April 10th (291 parents attended), from 6:15 - 7:45 p.m. 
All NYC Department of Education public schools are now on Spring Break until Wednesday, April 23rd.

FAQ sheets about Anderson's elementary grades in English, Russian, Chinese and Spanish and a document with information about the placement process are attached below. The English language documents were the handouts at our Open Houses; the translated versions are new. 

ESSENTIAL INFORMATION

Test Scores

For the past six years, children scoring only in the 99th percentile have been offered seats in grades K-3 at The Anderson School by the DOE (except siblings of current Anderson students.) We don’t anticipate that this will change this year. Although children who scored at or above the 97th percentile are eligible to apply to Anderson and their parents will see our name as an option on their applications, the chance of being offered a seat here is highly unlikely. The DOE has released this year's G&T testing data and across NYC a total of 948 children scored in the 99th percentile for Kindergarten, 126 children scored in the 99th for 1st grade, 52 for 2nd grade and 57 for 3rd. Please read the document posted below for a clarification of the placement process.

 

Available Seats

We estimate that the DOE will offer 42 of our 50 Kindergarten seats to non-sibling applicants. We expect to have 7 seats in total for 1st grade, but none for 2nd or 3rd grade at this time. However, the number of seats available should not be a factor in how you rank your school choices. To understand why, please read the document with placement information posted at the bottom of this page.



Tours
Parents of children who are offered a seat at The Anderson School for fall 2014 will be invited to take a daytime tour of our classrooms before the deadline to accept or decline the seat. If you receive a notice from the Department of Education that your child has been offered a seat here, please check this web page right away. We will post information about the tours here as soon as we are able, once we know the offers have been sent to parents.
