Acceptance Rate, Cutoff Scores and Ranges
Each year, about 814 seats are offered to eighth graders who want to attend Stuyvesant High School. As about 30,000 students are aiming for 814 seats, this means that Stuyvesant has a 2.71% acceptance rate for the eighth grade SHSAT. This rate becomes even more slim for ninth graders, where Stuyvesant only accepts 10 students of 3,000 potential test takers, giving us an acceptance rate of 0.33%. While these chances aren’t great, they are nothing compared to the strong work ethic, attitude, and motivation of the students who are able to gain admission to this prestigious school.
Of course, Stuyvesant also boasts a large number of Advanced Placement (AP) courses, like Art History, Biology, Calculus AB, Chemistry, Comparative Government and Politics, Computer Science, English Literature and Composition, English Language and Composition, Environmental Science, European History, French, Human Geography, Italian, Japanese, Macroeconomics, Music Theory, Physics, and Psychology. Additionally, students can take a diverse selection of language courses, such as French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Mandarin, and Spanish.
