Help for Applying to Kindergarten and Elementary Schools

January 24, 2012

Let’s just say that investigating and applying for schools in NYC is like crossing a raging river. (I’m trying to be optimistic here). Don’t despair! There are bridges for you so you can get to the other side of the process without losing your mind.  Insideschools.org is throwing you a rope and hosting a free event for parents about kindergarten and elementary school admissions.

Join Clara Hemphill, the staff of Insideschools, and other experts with answers to your questions about:

  • what to look for in an elementary school
  • how and when to register
  • gifted and talented programs
  • special education
  • English as a second language
  • charter schools

This event is co-sponsored by The New York City Council.  Invited guest: City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn.

Details: Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2012, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m
Theresa Lang Community & Student Center
55 W. 13th St. (between 5th & 6th Aves), 2nd floor
