We had another successful year: over 80 students accepted to specialized high schools! Congratulations to everyone! We are still putting together data for the cutoff scores, but here is what we have so far. Please let us know if there are any inconsistencies.
We are taking students now for the 2013-2014 prep year. The earlier you start, the better!
Bronx Science 512
HSAS @ Lehman 501
Staten Island Tech 502
HSMSE @ CCNY 497
Brooklyn Technical 484
Queens Science @ York College 495
Brooklyn Latin 473
Is the information that you posted accurate? Do you actually know someone got accepted to York with 495? My son scored 508 on the test, but he was not accepted to York. York is our 1st choice. Is that possible?
I went to the shsat test review in Brooklyn to look at my test and one of my friends went as well.I got a 76 out of 100 and that gave me only a 503.My friend got a 74 and had a raw score of 483.Also the guy who was there reviewing the test with me said that the lowest admitted score was a 471.This means that Brooklyn Latin is 471 exactly.The maximum score is not 800 it is in the 730s.
Very different schools. Our daughter got into Stuy and Bard Manhattan and we chose Stuy. Big mistake. She's doing great academically but the environment (huge, institutional) is not a good fit for her. Would have been much better off in the smaller Bard environment. And Bard is also an amazing school. It really depends on the commute issues and what type of environment your child will thrive in. Also, if your child is a math/science kid Stuy is the much better choice.
Couldn't agree more with this. Both great schools, but very very different. Our child got into both Stuy and Bard Manhattan this past year and we chose Stuy. Math / Science and huge diverse population of kids was a plus for us. Bard is great for kids who thrive in a seminar environment.
Does your child have friends that live in Brooklyn and attend Bronx Science? What do think of the commute? I am hoping to find some students at the open house this week to tell me. My daughter would love to put it as her first choice but the commute is close to 2 hours for us.
