G&T Placement

The G&T Request for Testing (RFT)  deadline for submission was November 13, 2017.

All children in Pre-K-grade 2 who applied by the deadline were tested during the  month of January, 2018. Score reports are expected to be distributed to families on March 27th. Children who qualify for G&T placement will be instructed on how to apply to schools. Please keep in mind that in District 3, not all students who qualify for G&T will receive placement.

If your child qualified for G&T, please note:

In the fall we held Open Houses that were open to anyone who was interested in applying to PS 166. It is not possible for us to hold additional Open Houses before the deadline to apply for G&T. However, after placement offers are distributed, we will have an Open House  for parents of children who receive placement at PS 166  and it will take place before the deadline to accept or decline the offer.

In recent years all children who were offered G&T placement at PS 166 in the initial round scored in the 99th percentile, with the exception of siblings who needed to score in the 90th percentile or above.
