Unique Class Schedule
This unique class schedule also reflects upon a very unique methodology of teaching at HSAS. History classes focus more on individual topics, similar to college courses. English courses feature very advanced texts even in freshman year. Students also have recitation class, similar to a college recitation, where students can study while supervised by a teacher. Because HSAS is only a few blocks away from Bronx Science, students can study together and make the trek back to Queens together.
Opportunities at QHSS
HSAS may be a small school but it provides individualized and special attention to its students and the small size contributes to a very strong community. The school recognizes that the most well-rounded and high achieving students have access to all of the best opportunities as well. Students can choose from so many different clubs and organizations and create connections that will last forever. Learning, to the administrators at HSAS, is more well-done when it occurs both inside and outside of the classroom.
Students at QHSS can choose between AP Calculus AB, AP English Language and Composition, AP English Literature and Composition, AP Environmental Science, AP Spanish Language and Culture, AP United States History, and AP World History as well as language courses like French, Japanese, Latin, and Spanish. If you hope to attend HSAS and become a global citizen, you must ace the SHSAT in order to start your journey and take advantage of all of the opportunities at HSAS.
HSAS has a strong sense of college preparedness and makes sure that its students are not falling behind by providing a lot of support. Attending HSAS will allow students to take the first steps towards a bright future.
