The Anderson School’s K-3 Open House will take place on Wednesday, April 19th from 6:15 - 7:45 p.m. Please arrive no earlier than 6:00 PM.
Anderson will have 36 seats in Kindergarten for non-siblings, 5 seats in first grade for non-siblings, and NO seats in second grade and third grade for non-siblings for fall 2017, all to be determined by the DOE's Enrollment Office by lottery for 99th percentile scorers only. (No other grades or scores will be considered for admission for the 2017-18 school year.)
Details about our Evening Open Houses
For the past nine years, 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.

Anderson will hold two middle school Open Houses on Tuesday, November 29th and Wednesday, December 7, 2016 from 6:00-7:30 pm. No reservations are necessary. You are NOT required to attend an Open House in order to apply to The Anderson School. Please visit the 6th grade or 7th grade admissions pages on this website to apply.
If your child did NOT get offered a seat at a school/s you ranked on your child's G & T application and you would like information about the wait list, please note:
If the Department of Education has notified you that your child is eligible to apply to the Anderson School (by receiving a total percentile score of 97 or higher on the Gifted and Talented test), please see this page of our website immediately for details about next week's evening Open Houses: http://www.ps334school.org/admissions/open-house-nights
