NYC Gifted and Talented Program and Testing


PS 129 Gifted and Talented Institutes Dress Code

Parents on the far upper west side were shocked when they learned their talented tots would be required to wear a school uniform daily.  It looks like PS 129 gifted and talented institutes dress code for all of their students – whether G&T or general education.  I personally have no problem with a dress code at school but for a Kindergartener to wear a tie each day? Oh and it has to be burgundy color!  It’s hard enough for parents to get their kids out of bed in the morning and dressed in casual clothes let along putting on their Sunday best for every day of the week at school. Not sure of the reasoning behind the dress code but as far as I know this is the only G&T program for Kindergarten in New York City that mandates a specific dress code for their students.

Here’s a copy of the actual letter that parents received regarding the dress code:
