Middle school admissions update (4/6/20)

posted Jan 27, 2020, 8:39 AM by Donna Smiley   [ updated Apr 8, 2020, 7:30 AM ]

Middle school offers for 6th grade have been made through MySchools as of April 6, 2020. Please confirm that you are accepting your seat at The Anderson School (or not) in your MySchools account. If you have any questions, please feel free to direct them to Donna Smiley at dsmiley@schools.nyc.gov. (Unfortunately, we cannot give you specific feedback about your child's onsite test until the schools reopen since those materials are at the school.) 

Middle school waitlists will open in MySchools the week of April 13. 

Middle School Admissions Update (1/27/20) All admissions testing invitations have been extended to eligible applicants for The Anderson School and testing will conclude on January 30th. The Anderson School cannot release information about our sixth grade test results until after the NYC Department of Education's Enrollment Office extends offers to all sixth grade students based on their district's middle school applications in late March. Once those matches have been communicated with families, you may contact us to find out if your child is on our waitlist that extends to seventh grade and what his or her ranking might be. Not all students who tested are ranked. Ranking is determined by the school's admissions testing and the student's fourth grade report card, attendance, punctuality, and standardized test scores (or the equivalent) per the "Admissions Decisions" heading posted on this school's 6th Grade Admissions website page.

Open Houses for potential 6th grade students

posted Sep 7, 2018, 8:29 AM by Donna Smiley   [ updated Dec 5, 2018, 6:02 AM by Ana Crenovich ]

The Anderson School held two Open House events in November 2018 for potential 6th grade students in the 2019-20 school year. You DO NOT have to attend an Open House to be considered for testing/admission. These are information sessions with a self-guided tour of some of our classrooms and a chance to meet some of our students/parents in order for you to determine if/how to rank Anderson on your middle school choice application. The handouts from these evenings are posted below.

Kindergarten Open Houses 4/9 and 4/12 at 6 pm (adults only, please)

posted Apr 9, 2018, 7:50 AM by Donna Smiley   [ updated Apr 10, 2018, 10:06 AM ]

We only have seats for non-siblings in Kindergarten. There are no seats available at The Anderson School for non-siblings in grades 1 and 3 for fall 2018. We have one seat to offer a non-sibling for grade 2 (as of 4/10/18).

OPEN HOUSES for 2018-19 School Year

posted Mar 27, 2018, 1:55 PM by Donna Smiley   [ updated Mar 29, 2018, 12:22 PM by Ana Crenovich ]

K-3 G&T scores were released on 3/27/18. Students who received an overall G&T score of 97th-99th percentile officially qualify to list Anderson on their child's G&T application. (Please note that only 99th percentile students who are not current Anderson siblings have ever been placed here through the current process.)
OPEN HOUSE dates are Monday, April 9th and Thursday, April 12th from 6:00-7:30 pm. There is no need to register, just show up - adults ONLY- and we will welcome visitors until we hit capacity per the NYC fire code. You are invited to hear short presentations from the parent and community coordinators, a teacher or two, and then you will be able to take a self-tour through our elementary school classrooms and view student work, speak with current parents, and look at the school facilities so you can make an informed choice when deciding which schools you will list on your child's application. You DO NOT HAVE TO ATTEND AN OPEN HOUSE to select The Anderson School as one of your choices.
We have two classes of 25 Kindergarten students each. We currently do not have any seats for non-siblings in grades one, two, or three, but that may change as we near the end of this year. (We do not know how many non-sibling seats we will have to offer in Kindergarten yet.) The Anderson School does not admit any new students to grades four or five.
