Getting into Bronx Science
We do not control our admissions. All admission questions should go directly to your current guidance counselor or high school enrollment. For detailed information regarding Specialized High Schools, please visit: schools.nyc.gov/shs.
Entrance into Bronx Science (and all specialized testing high schools) is determined by the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT). Students must be residents of New York City and current eighth grade or ninth grade students in order to apply, register, sit for, and receive results for the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT). Current 10 and 11 graders cannot enter Bronx Science.
The SHSAT assesses knowledge and skills. These skills consist of the ability to comprehend English prose, to demonstrate understanding of revising and editing skills central to writing in English, and to use problem-solving skills in mathematics. The test measures knowledge and skills students have gained over the course of their education. Keeping up with schoolwork throughout the year is the best possible preparation.
Students are ranked according to their score on the test and assigned to a school depending on their rank, the priority in which they placed schools on their application, and the seats available at each school.
