NYC School Survey

Your School. Your Child. Your Voice.

Every year, all parents, teachers, students in grades 6-12 and select school support staff take the NYC School Survey. The survey helps school leaders understand what key members of their school community think about the learning environment at their school. The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.

Take the 2020-21 NYC School Survey NOW!(Open external link)

Families should enter “f” followed by their child’s nine-digit Student Identification (OSIS) Number to access the survey. Note that “f” must be lowercase. Families can find their child’s Student Identification Number on their report card, student ID card, or New York City Schools Account (NYCSA).

Gifted and Talented Kindergarten Selection Process

2021 Admissions

This year, for children applying to enter programs in fall 2021, Gifted & Talented (G&T) offers will be made differently than in previous years.

  • We will not be administering a G&T test.

  • Instead, families and educators will help identify students for accelerated learning.

Who Can Participate

  • For families with children entering first, second, and third grades in fall 2021: Offers to G&T programs will be made to children from last year's G&T waitlists. The DOE will not be accepting new applications for these seats.

  • All families with children born in 2016 who live in New York City—including those who have temporarily relocated due to the COVID-19 pandemic—can participate in G&T admissions.

How to Participate:

REGISTER YOUR CHILD FOR KINDERGARTEN

In New York City, children enter kindergarten in the fall of the calendar year they turn five, and are guaranteed a kindergarten seat at a public school. If you have a child born in 2016, you will apply to kindergarten this winter and your child will begin kindergarten in September 2021. Once your child starts kindergarten, they can remain at the same school until its final elementary grade.

Immunization Compliance

New York State Public Health Law requires students to get certain vaccines in order to attend child care or school. 

Children must receive the flu vaccine by December 31, 2020. It is best to vaccinate your child as soon as the vaccine becomes available. It becomes available in early fall.
