    Anderson Middle School test

    Does anybody know if the writing part is a creative essay or a response to texts, like on the state tests? If so, are the texts fiction or non-fiction?
    I know my kid has less than 1% chance of getting in, but want to tell him what to expect.

    Hi--my child has just received an invitation to test for Anderson. Would appreciate any tips/info about the admissions test, especially thr writing part. Thank you very much in advance!

    For those of you with kids who were invited to test for Anderson, could you please, please share what their state test scores were? My son had nearly all 'exceeds standards' and 4s on the state test (mid-4 for ELA and high-4 for math). But maybe that's not high enough? Any perspective? Also, I assume that since we haven't heard yet, we won't? Thank you!!

    You’ll very likely get an invitation. My son scored in the same same range as yours. I only know he’ll be invited because I called the school to find out. They’re running behind with sending the invites out, so you’ll probably get yours next week.

    I also think your son will get an invitation. They're testing 800 kids this year, so I assume anyone with solid 4's will be invited.

    Hi--my son just got accepted to Anderson. We're excited for him but also a bit nervous as it'll be a big change and no other kids from his current school are going. Hoping for some advice for rising 6th grades coming in from outside Anderson... thanks!

    Can someone post on how to prep your child for Middle School Exams...My daughter is in 4th grade but we just want to get familiar with the process.

    The exams are proprietary and familes of test-takers sign confidentiality agreements with the school, so the actual test is secret. Having said that, accepted students are very strong in both ELA & Math.

    How does one get an invite to the school ? Does one apply somewhere ? What are the criteria for their selection ? I am considering moving soon to the west side.

    Last year they sent out invitations based on a rubric that included state test scores, attendance, and report card scores (4 core subjects) from 4th grade. If you list Anderson as one of your 12 slots for middle school, and you meet their initial rubric, you'll receive an invitation to take the test.

    Also, Anderson is a G&T citywide school. Anybody from the 5 boroughs can apply to Anderson for middle school, so it makes no difference where you live within NYC.
