The Anderson School, PS 334, is a Kindergarten - 8th grade school started in 1987 to provide an accelerated and enriched curriculum for the distinct needs of gifted learners. Elementary and middle school grades are fully integrated within our highly successful K-8 school. With only two classes per grade, the relationship between students and teachers is personal and supportive. This smaller population fosters a strong sense of community among students who live throughout the five boroughs of New York City. Guided by educators who recognize the needs of gifted learners, Anderson provide intimate, differentiated, and departmentalized* instruction (*grades 5-8). The school encourages critical thinking, creative problem-solving, divergent thinking, research, independent study, collaboration, and self-evaluation through engaging and culturally relevant instruction. Anderson brings together a team of imaginative, caring teachers; an innovative administration; and committed and involved families who sustain Anderson through their very active participation.
Anderson occupies the first two floors of the William J. O'Shea Campus located on the corner of W. 77th St. and Columbus Avenue. The building also houses two middle schools, The Computer School and the Dual Language Middle School.
