The Long Island School for the Gifted (LISG) is a unique and exciting school for grades K-9.
We are a community dedicated to providing an outstanding education for academically gifted children where they are nurtured and treasured.
We offer an academically challenging and nurturing environment.
Although technically not a neighborhood school, there is a true sense of community within our walls.
Class size is small, typically sixteen, as is the student/faculty ratio.
This provides numerous opportunities for student/teacher interactions and enables us to focus on the needs of each child in our crusade to provide challenging material that will encourage and nurture an intrinsic love of learning in each of our students.
