The NYC Department of Education (DOE) would like to invite middle school students and their families to attend a workshop series to learn about high school options and the admissions process. Students entering 8th grade in September 2011 are encouraged to attend with their families so they can make more informed decisions when they apply to high school in the fall.
There will be three sessions covering the following topics:
Session 1: High School Admissions: Where Do I Start?
An introduction to the process and the many types of schools available
Session 2: Specialized High Schools
Learn about the nine Specialized High Schools and the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT)
Session 3: Make Informed Decisions
An overview of admissions methods with an emphasis on screened and audition programs
These workshops will take place in all five boroughs; translation and interpretation services will be available. View this flyer for a complete schedule of the workshops.
