Kuei Luck – SHSAT

The only way into NYC most ELITE public schools is the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT)

New York City’s Specialized High Schools are rated as some of the best public high schools in the nation. They offer a top notch education to NYC residents. Best of all, these schools are public schools and charge no tuition. The only way to gain admission to one of these schools is by taking the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) that is administered to eighth and ninth graders every fall. Each year, over 30,000 students take this exam; however, only a small fraction of them are accepted to a Specialized High School.


NEW EXAM DATE 1/27/2021
