New York City’s charter schools give families additional public school options. Read the Charter School Directory to learn more about charter high schools and how to apply.
Students with disabilities may apply to all programs listed in the 2013-2014 High School Directory, subject to the same admissions requirements as their peers. They may take the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) and apply for all audition programs, including Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. Testing accommodations will be provided during the SHSAT administration, as outlined in the student’s IEP or 504 plan.
Students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) that recommend a specialized District 75 program or New York State Approved non-public school program are placed through a separate process. However, these students may submit a high school application if their IEP for the following school year recommends programs and/or services in a community school. Read more.
