Parents of children whose scores on the Department of Education's Gifted and Talented testing make them eligible to apply to The Anderson School will have an opportunity to visit the school in the spring. Visits will take place in the short period after the scores and applications have been sent to parents, but before the deadline to return the application with the ranked school choices to the DOE.
We cannot schedule visits to our school in the fall, due to the large numbers of parents interested. Holding our events in the spring allows us to accommodate the parents who will actually be eligible to apply to our school, as well as saving many parents the time, trouble and babysitting expense of a visit in the fall, when our school may not even be an option for them in the spring.
Information about visiting our school will be posted here on this page, once we know the definite date that the score reports will be released to parents, probably mid-April, 2014.
We are located at 100 West 77th Street, between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues. The nearest subway stops are at Broadway & 79th Street (the #1 train) and at 81st & Central Park West/American Museum of Natural History (the B and C trains.)
