every child has a zoned gen ed school based on where they lived. there is however not a guaranteed spot for K, as a school may be oversubscribed and have a WL, in which case there is a chance of your dc being assigned a spot at another school in your district. you can apply to take the test for a G&T program (which may or may not be within a school or a separate school) in late October/early November. Tests are given in January/February. To be eligible to apply for a spot at a citywide school (take students from anywhere in 5 boros) your dc needs to score at least a 97 (although often there are mpre kids scoring 99s than there are spots at these schools so effectively only 99s have a chance). to apply for spot at your district G&T, dc needs at least a 90, but for many of the more coveted programs, there are more 99s than there are spots, so again effectively dc needs a 99 to have a chance. siblings get first priority so as long as they make the cut off (90 or 97) they are in. scores come out in April and palcements come out around now.
