The Sixth Annual Astoria School Symposium is an opportunity for schools and parents to share information about educational choices for Astoria children. The symposium will consist of two components: a fair and a forum. The fair will be ongoing from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. School representatives will be staffing booths and answering questions from families about their school. At the forum, parents who have undergone the admission process and representatives from the DOE will review with families the procedures for Astoria nurseries, preschools (including Pre-K for all/UPK), and kindergarten. There will also be forums on special topics, including gifted and talented and the private elementary school process. The event is free to the public but registration is required at www.nyschool.org (In case of inclement weather, the symposium will be rescheduled for the following Saturday, February 11th at the same location).
