6th Grade Admissions

Admissions for the 2022-2023 school year

The Anderson School is a choice on every 5th grader's middle school application in MySchools. Please be sure to rank schools in your true order of preference.

We encourage twice-exceptional ICT students to apply.


Anderson is a K-8 school; therefore, fifth graders currently enrolled in Anderson are guaranteed a seat in our sixth grade if they choose to continue at Anderson. However, we usually expand our class size slightly in sixth grade and we expect to have at total of at least 11 seats available in sixth grade for Fall 2022.

The Anderson School is a rigorous, academically accelerated public school that seeks a diverse student population and welcomes applications from motivated, hard-working students of all races, ethnic and economic backgrounds living in any of the five boroughs. Students who apply to The Anderson School should be prepared to work above grade-level if they attend the school. 

We also seek motivated, high achieving, twice-exceptional, fifth grade students who are designated as Integrated Collaborative Teaching (ICT) by the DOE to fill some of our sixth grade seats for the 2022-23 school year. Twice-exceptional students at Anderson are extremely hard-workers with a strong sense of curiosity and dedication to their academics, be ferocious readers, or have an insatiable desire to delve into one or more topics, but they may need support with their executive function skills. Half of the classes in sixth, seventh, and eighth are ICT classes. (That's one ICT class in each of sixth, seventh, and eighth grades.)

All students applying to The Anderson School (general education and Integrated Collaborative Teaching/ICT) will use the DOE’s MySchools site to access the DOE's middle school application, once it is available in early 2022.

If your child is not enrolled in a NYC public school, you will have to contact a Family Welcome Center before the deadline to be assigned a student ID.
