NYC Gifted and Talented Program and Testing


PS 33 Chelsea Prep in District 2 Gifted and Talented Update

This past school year my daughter completed second grade in the New York City gifted and talented program at PS 33 Chelsea Prep in District 2. The principal, Linore Lindy, created another great year as the G&T program expanded through 3rd grade this year and going to 4th grade for the 2012-2013 school year.  Overall, the 2011-2012 school year was a great success and kudos to Ms. Alison Epstein who taught the second grade gifted and talented class at PS 33 this past year. As you can tell by the photos below, the curriculum is 1 to 2 years ahead of a general ed second grade not only in New York City but across the nation.

Are you preparing your child for the G&T test for 2012-2013 then make sure you practice with the new Aristotle Circle workbook for the NNAT. Trust me, the NNAT test is super-duper difficult and is even timed! Now that’s even more pressure for our talented tots.
