"Excellence in education is when we do everything that we can to make sure they become everything that they can." -Carol Ann Tomlinson
Here at New Milestone, we believe that every child is capable of achieving greatness.
"Gifted & Talented (G&T) programs are one way that the NYC Department of Education supports the needs of exceptional students. G&T programs aim to deliver accelerated, rigorous, and specialized instruction aligned to Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS)" (www.nyc.gov).
The G&T test determines the educational future of every child that partakes in the exam. Here at New Milestone, we understand that this exam is very challenging. We are well equipped and ready to prep your child to complete the G&T exam with competence and the necessary skills needed to pass. Our program has a 90% passing rate for the past two years. We have confidence in all of our children.
During the first few weeks of school, we begin to work with each child individually for 30 minutes a day, five days a week. Our test prep consists of two sets of tests: The NNAT ® test and the OLSAT ® test. The NNAT test is designed to test pattern completion, and reasoning by analogy. The OLSAT test covers aural reasoning, pictorial reasoning, figural reasoning, following directions, and arithmetic reasoning. We also work on test taking skills, such as listening to the question, and the process of selecting the most appropriate answer, if they are unsure how to respond.
Here at New Milestone, it is our goal to make sure that your children receive the most effective preparation for the G&T test. The future starts here.
