Gifted & Talented

G&T Placement

PS 166 has Gifted and Talented (G&T)  classes on every grade.

The G&T application period has begun; the deadline for submission is November 9, 2018. Families can submit an application at a Family Welcome Center, or online. Children who will be in grades K-3 in September 2019 may apply.

If you are interested in having your child test for the G&T program for the 2019-20 school year, you must submit an application for testing by the deadline.

Testing takes place in January. Children currently attending a DOE school are tested at their school during the school day and will receive the date from their current school.  Children not attending a DOE school will receive instructions as to how to schedule an appointment with the DOE once they submit the application.
