Applying to NEST+m for Grades K – 3

Thank you for your interest in attending NEST+m. Each year the Department of Education receives far more qualified applicants than NEST+m has available seats for. Please read the information posted below before signing up for a tour.

Placement into Grades K – 5 at NEST+m is handled, in full, through the NYC Department of Education’s Office of Gifted and Talented Enrollment.

Test Scores

Historically, the NYC Department of Education’s Office of Gifted and Talented Enrollment has only offered seats to applicants with an overall G&T percentile rank in the 99th percentile (except siblings of current NEST+m students). We don’t anticipate that this will change this year. Although children who scored at or above the 97th percentile are eligible to apply to NEST+m, and their parents will see our name as an option on their applications, the chance of being offered a seat in grades K – 3 with a composite score on the G&T test of 97% or 98%, is highly unlikely.
