Students can get in despite their previous academic record, but they must prepare extremely hard to get into Stuyvesant. We see it as a second chance for a reason – the days of slacking off must come to an end if you want to attend Stuyvesant High School. Not only that – once they are admitted, they must work like they never have before. There’s a reason that Stuyvesant is the “hardest” specialized high school to get in to: the schoolwork and curriculum at Stuyvesant are extremely advanced. So while you might get a second chance after slacking off in middle school, there’s no chance you will be able to survive at Stuyvesant with that same slacker mentality.
In terms of academic opportunities, at Stuyvesant, you can take advanced courses like Multivariate Calculus, Differential Equations, Organic Chemistry, or Genetics, which may not be offered at every school. If you attend Stuyvesant, these opportunities, and many others, will be easily accessible to you.

That’s why we at Bobby-Tariq Tutoring Center recommend a number of studying strategies; students should not only self-study but also take advantage of preparatory books, comprehensive SHSAT classes, and private tutors if they can. Furthermore, students should take advantage of resources like the DREAM Program and the Discovery Program to get an edge on the competition. You can also learn more about these resources in our SHSAT guide.
