The spring is the time when you get your child's Gifted and Talented test score report. If your child got a G&T test score of 90 or above, you will also get a G&T application.
District and citywide G&T programs have different qualifying scores:
If the score is 90+ and you apply to G&T programs, you will get your results in the late spring. There is no guarantee that a student will get an offer to a G&T program, regardless of their G&T test score. The number of eligible students typically exceeds the number of seats available. In this perspective we encourage you to apply for the higher number of the G&T programs to be sure you child will got a placement.
We start classes very soon and invite you to visit this page throughout the year for getting an ongoing information and printable practice worksheets.
Meanwhile there is some information about a registration for taking the Gifted and Talented test. The registration will start in October as soon as NYC DOE announce that registration is open. I believe that the way to be advised immediately is to subscribe to the DOE Gifted & Talented email list to learn exactly when and how to sign your child up to the test:
These year, 2018, kids who were born in 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2011 are eligible for registering for the G&T testing.
