Hunter College Elementary School (HCES) has announced that it has added a second weekend to its kindergarten Round 2 admission dates and has eliminated the two weekdays.
HCES had originally set January 28, 29, 30, 31 as the days that parents should save for Round 2 onsite assessment. Round 2 sessions will now be held on the weekends of January 21/22 and 28/29.
If you have a child that scores high enough on the modified Stanford-Binet V test that HCES uses to screen applicants during Round 1 of the application process, (in recent years the cut off has ranged from 143 to 149) such that the child MAY be invited to Round 2, please take note of this change.
Families with an unchangeable conflict on January 21/22, including scheduled DOE Gifted and Talented (G&T) OLSAT testing, should send an email to HCESAdmit@hccs.hunter.cuny.edu noting the conflict. HCES will not take special requests for appointment times, but will ensure that all qualified children are able to attend a Round 2 assessment session.
Also note, the deadline to apply to HCES is this Friday, November 4, 2011. Hunter is accepting applications from children who are born in 2007 and reside in Manhattan only.
