HOW DO I GET INTO NYC HIGH-SCHOOL?

Getting Into NYC High-School: This Time It's Personal!

When I wrote Getting Into NYC High-School last fall, my oldest son was already a HS junior, so the book was a combination of research, personal experience, and input from other students and parents who'd recently been through the process.

This year, as I prepare to update the book for 2018 admissions, my middle child is embarking on the process.

Yesterday, he took his first practice SHSAT test. And while he accepted the math questions he got wrong with grace, boy, did he fight me on every single reading comprehension question, insisting that his answer was just as valid as what the sample test said was right.

So, parents who buy my book for help with 2018 admissions, know that none of this is theoretical. This year, I'm right there with you!

And I want to help, because I know just how overwhelming this application season is.

To that end, please click on my video about all of your NYC high-school options, including Specialized, Screened, Arts, Limited Unscreened, P-Tech, Zoned and more, below:



Then listen to this podcast about SHSAT prep:



And check out my blog post about why I think attending a Specialized High-School was good for my son (and it's not the reason the Department of Education wants you to think)!
