No, meaning Lab has its own test, Salk has an interview/test, 289 has an interview, ESMS has an interview, good schools also look at grades and test scores. The school are selective in how they choose their students. [ Reply | More ]

Middle schools select by academics. The funny thing is that NEST is the one middle school that (in the past) added quite a few seats and most of those students were coming from regular gen eds and they sometimes outperformed the students who entered in K. The whole notion of "gifted" in elementary school is really silly and your dc will not miss much (if anything) if he isn't in a g&t program. [ Reply | More ]

OR: What? My dc didn't take the g&t test for K. Until lately, most students with good zoned schools didn't take it. The Bloomberg DOE made a huge error by establishing citywide elementary schools -- there was absolutely not need for them and it meant that the DOE now spent hundreds of thousands of dollars needless testing 4 year olds because their insecure parents thought they might be irreparably harmed by not being in a citywide from K. Instead, there can be local g&t programs for kids without good zoned schools, which is what they always had. [ Reply | More ]

in reality, it makes sense for g&t to begin in middle school. [ Reply | More ]

Of course it does. I would be impressed with de Blasio/Farina if they start phasing out citywides right now. Last class is current K and they move up, but no new K classes. Instead, the seats in K go to expanding the 6th grade. And the following year the seats in K and 1st go to expanding 7th grade. And in 5 years, you have a 200 or 300 seat per grade middle school that accommodates lots of academic students. And if the DOE wants to open up an additional local g&t program in each district to make up for the citywide spots, fine. [ Reply | More ]

See above - I'm an EMT, so, yes. BTW - do you know how you assist in a taxi cab birth? Just catch the kid and, if you can somehow, suction out their mouth and nostrils. There's really nothing you have to do for the mother - as they taught us in our EMT training - women have been giving birth for tens of thousands of years. It may be uncomfortable, but unless there's a complication that kid is coming out without your help. [ Reply | More ]
