Kindergarten-3rd Grade Admissions
Kindergarten - 3rd grade Admissions for the 2023–24 School Year
2023 Kindergarten Offers:
If you were made an offer to Anderson, congratulations! You can accept or decline the offer in MySchools. Then please send an email to Donna Smiley (Dsmiley@schools.nyc.gov) confirming your choice. She will reach out to you soon. The deadline to respond to your offer is May 5th.
There will be an orientation event for families who ACCEPTED their offers only, in May after the response deadline has passed.
This year, Anderson's Kindergarten had many sibling offers, so we expect that the waitlist movement will be under 10 spots.
Admission to Grades 1-3:
- Eligible families with children entering grades 1, 2, 3 can apply to Anderson for the fall 2023 by submitting a G&T application online with MySchools or through a Family Welcome Center. Applications will be taken between May 2nd and May 15th.
- Eligibility guidelines can be found on this DOE website: https://www.schools.nyc.gov/enrollment/enroll-grade-by-grade/gifted-talented
All admissions decisions are made by the Department of Education. Anderson does not have a direct role in this process.
For questions other than waitlist position, please contact the Community Coordinator, Donna Smiley, at (firstname.lastname@example.org)
