WELCOME TO KINDERGARTEN and GIFTED & TALENTED ADMISSIONS
Applying to kindergarten is an exciting first step in your child’s elementary school journey. New York City students apply to kindergarten in the year they turn five. Between late November 2018 and January 14, 2019, apply to kindergarten by submitting a kindergarten application. You can apply to up to 12 kindergarten programs. You can also schedule your child to take the Gifted & Talented (G&T) test. Students who get a high enough score can then apply to kindergarten G&T programs. Use this admissions guide to learn about how to apply to kindergarten, how to study for the G&T test and participate in G&T admissions, and how students get kindergarten and G&T offers. Find schools near you on our district maps. Then visit MySchools.nyc to learn more about them and apply.
MySchools is both an online directory of NYC public schools and a personalized application for your child. Now you can explore NYC public schools, find choices for your application, and apply—all in one place.
