Admissions to one of New York City’s specialized high schools is continues to be increasingly competitive. Over 25,000 NYC eighth and ninth-graders take the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) each year, contending for approximately 5,500 coveted seats at eight exclusive high schools.
As the content of the test is unlike that covered in the students’ daily curricula, it is important that they engage in test preparation courses.
Designed to offer high quality individualized instruction in small group sessions, the Specialized High School Admission Test (SHSAT) Prep Program provides students with instruction and practice of every question type while honing skills and strategies that will help them achieve high scores on the SHSAT.
Students work with experienced teachers who have years of success preparing students for the exam. The SHSAT is a timed multiple-choice test with two sections, verbal and math, that must be completed in a total of 2 hours and 30 minutes. In the first section, students demonstrate their verbal reasoning and reading comprehension by ordering sentences to form a coherent paragraph, answering questions of logical reasoning, and analyzing and interpreting texts. In the second section, students demonstrate their math skills by answering computational and word questions that require arithmetic, algebra, probability, statistics, geometry, and trigonometry (on the Grade 9 test only).
Our program has been in existence since 2011 and since then our students have received offers to most of the Specialized High Schools including Stuyvesant, Brooklyn Tech, and Bronx Science.
