BHSEC Manhattan and BHSEC Queens are New York City Public Schools.
Students from all five boroughs are welcome to apply to either or both schools.
The newly established BHSEC Newark accepts students from all Newark neighborhoods.
BHSEC schools are small, with a total enrollment of fewer than 600 students each, and a student teacher ratio of 20 to 1. They are ideally suited for students who are excited by ideas and eager to be challenged. Admission is based on the student’s academic record, writing, and math assessments, a teacher recommendation (optional), and an interview.
