Screen High Schools—Screen High Schools are also excellent public high schools in NYC. Unlike the Specialized High Schools, Screen High Schools consider a much more complete student profile in their admissions process. Examples of Screen High Schools are Beacon and Millennium. Like Independent schools, they review the following documents.
Performing Arts Schools—New York City students with an interest in the arts have an array of high school choices dedicated to cultivating artistic talent. To gain admission to these schools, in addition to demonstrating your academic aptitude, you must also exhibit strong artistic skills in the form of an audition and/or portfolio. These auditions usually fall in October or November of the student’s 8th grade year.
