High School Placement

High School Placement

The high school placement process in the New York City independent school realm is very complex. The journey begins in the spring of seventh grade and culminates with successful high school enrollment. Students from our Bedford-Stuyvesant location travel to high schools in New York City, Long Island and beyond.

The transition to high school can can seem overwhelming, but our high school placement counselor is an experienced resource for our seventh and eighth grade families.

Seventh and eighth grade families and students work with the counselor to identify, explore, prepare for, apply to and enroll in high schools that meet each students’ academic, social and emotional needs. Advisory services include an orientation workshop in the fall of seventh grade, ongoing individual conferences and general information and guidance to help families and students confidently navigate this important transition.

Are you exploring a BWS application for a seventh or eighth grade student?

Admissions staff is pleased to provide more information about high school preparations and advisory.
