New Explorations into Science, Technology and Math, abbreviated NEST+m, is a public school located on the Lower East Side of the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, and is under the supervision of the New York City Department of Education, serving grades kindergarten through 12.[1]

The school exclusively enrolls New York City resident K–3 children scoring within the 97th, 98th, or 99th and sixth graders at the 95th percentile nationwide in standardized tests administered by the New York City Department of Education for their Gifted & Talented Program.[2] It is one of only five such New York citywide programs where qualified elementary or middle school students from any school district in any borough may enroll, and also the only program with a dedicated facility (the other four programs share schools with the general education student population) and the only program serving grades K through 12.

Prospective 9th and 10th grade students apply through the NYC High School Application Process as well as their entrance exam.
