High School for Excellence and Innovation
Our school presents an opportunity for 15- and 16-year old New York City residents entering the 9th grade for the first time. We believe that although these students have been held back two years during elementary and/or middle school, our trimester system and small class sizes will allow the pace and attention for these students to achieve in high school and be prepared for college and 21st century career paths!
