  1. Hello! I am a former Roosevelt Island resident (we moved to DC in 2010 for a short term post) but am returning to RI in October of this year. We now have a son who is almost two. While it's still early, I am trying to figure out the education options on the island or nearby so as to avoid a move before he is five. I remember hearing about the GT program when it first started and was excited about the development. Is there anyone out there willing to talk to me about the program? It'd just be an email or phone call of your time...and when I'm back, it'll be my treat at The Trellis! Thank you. Christine
