We’ve heard from many of you regarding the school tours for the NYC gifted and talented program! Now that the OLSAT test is long-gone the school selection process is even MORE stressful!
Here’s what we’ve heard from a few of our TestingMom.com members! Tell us your story.
Dear Michael, thanks for talking to me last Friday. Just wanted to let you know that I went on a tour of PS 33 and was incredibly impressed. Wow. What a great school. Congratulations on choosing that school for your daughter–I am sure she loves it.

If you are familiar with Brooklyn schools, would you recommend PS 95 gifted or PS 215 general ed? I know 215 is a better school overall, but do I opt out of g and t if this is the choice I’m left with? Thanks for your advice!

Hi – I have been frantically searching for information on G&T schools in District 2. My son is entering Kindergarten and has a seat a PS 150 but is eligible for citywide and district 2 G&T programs. I have been touring all week, and I was very impressed with my tour of PS 33. He currently attends PreK at 150 and is very happy there, but he sort of operates in his own universe in the classroom and I am worried that they won’t have the resources to stimulate him as he continues to move through that school.
