Kindergarten-3rd Grade Open Houses and Tours

Virtual Tour/Open House

A virtual tour/open house is in production and a link will be posted on this webpage soon (hopefully by Monday, May 4th) to help families determine the order of their school rankings on the G&T application. 

It is not necessary to view this to rank The Anderson School on your child's application.

Test Scores 

For over a decade, only children with an overall G&T percentile rank in the 99th percentile have been offered seats in grades K-3 at The Anderson School by the Department of Education (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. 

Available Seats 
We have a total of 50 Kindergarten seats. We do not yet know how many siblings of Anderson students will have scores to give them priority placement. We will post that information when we know it, but it does not affect the odds of your receiving an offer. We expect to have 8 seats in total for 1st grade. At this time, we are not aware of any openings for 2nd grade, and we only know about one seat available for 3rd grade. Occasionally, seats will open up in any grade due to attrition; however, the number of seats available should not be a factor in how you rank your school choices.
