We currently have a Gifted and Talented Program on grades K-5. Gifted and talented admission is based on a city wide test administered upon request by the parent. Testing for the next year's grade can be done for grades 1,2 and 3 at PS 8. For parents of Pre-K students, you must contact the Distict 31 for more information.
The Gifted and Talented Program at P.S. 8 is a standards based, rigorous program that offers music enrichment as well as the opportunity to participate in the many theater arts programs offered at P.S. 8.
The placement of students into the program at Public School 8 is soley determined by the Office of Student Enrollment. P.S.8 does not select students for admission to this program.
