NEST+m is a New York City Department of Education citywide school for Gifted & Talented students, grades K to 12. We offer an academically challenging curriculum designed to produce young scholars who are distinguished by their intellectual capabilities, communication skills, capacity for leadership, ethical values, and readiness to contribute to the betterment of the world at large.
We are the only public Gifted & Talented school in New York City in which students can move seamlessly from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Our three grade levels—Lower (grades K–5), Middle (6–8) and Upper (9–12)—occupy their own unique space within our large, sun-filled building, but they share a single educational philosophy and a unified school spirit.
- At NEST+m, intellectualism, inclusivity, collaboration and exploration within and beyond our school community enable our students to lead lives filled with learning, discovery and purpose.
- NEST+m’s students feel valued and cared for. They develop the academic mindsets and metacognitive skills necessary for long-term learning.
- NEST+m students blossom into practitioners–scientists, mathematicians, technologists, writers, historians, musicians, painters, linguists and artists–who learn from and with each other.
Congratulations to our Graduates!

Parent Volunteers Needed for Yearbook Distribution!
We need a few more parent volunteers to help with yearbook distribution next week, specifically Monday, but likely Tuesday and Wednesday as well. The more help we can get, the sooner we can get the yearbooks in the hands of our eager students! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.PTA
