UPDATE 5/13/2013: We will not be hosting any more Open Houses for parents applying for Kindergarten through 3rd grade for the 2013-2014 school year. We thank the 685 parents who attended our four Open Houses for their interest in The Anderson School.
Attached at the bottom of this page are two handouts parents received at our Open Houses - an FAQ sheet about Anderson's elementary grades and our explanation of the DOE's placement process. In addition to visiting the different pages on this website to learn about our school, we encourage you to visit www.insideschools.org to read the write-up about Anderson and see some photos, too. There are also photos of school events on our homepage.
The table below shows the number of open seats we anticipate in grades K-3, the number of eligible siblings of current students who have priority for those seats and the number of students who scored in the 99th percentile across all five boroughs this year - before the two announcements of scoring errors were made, resulting in an additional 1,226 children being added to the 99th percentile. We do not yet have the new breakdown by grade. A document with information about the placement process is attached at the bottom of this page.
For information about the recently discovered errors in the scoring of some NYC G&T tests, visit: http://schools.nyc.gov/Academics/GiftedandTalented/default.htm
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.)
