AM New York : A student's journey to Stuyvesant High

“I’m glad I took the exam as an entrance into the school. Though I understand the agitation behind this form of admission, it’s important to consider the feeling obtained from passing the test. There’s a great sense of accomplishment when you work hard and are able to achieve something. That satisfaction would be diminished if other factors got me there. “

What New York’s Public Schools Could Learn From Stuyvesant

"In fact, New York’s elite public high schools, which de Blasio and Ocasio-Cortez hope to dismantle, have been major drivers of social and economic mobility in New York for decades. If they are successful in destroying these schools, they won’t succeed in improving education for black and Latino students in any material way, but they will destroy a free public school that provides an elite education to hundreds of Asian-Americans from economically disadvantaged backgrounds every year."

In Defense of New York City’s Elite Public High Schools

" Admission to these schools is determined solely on the basis of performance in a special entrance examination—so these schools have avoided the problems associated with legacy admissions, athletics-based preferences and donor pressures, all of which serve to undermine the merit principle at many elite universities." Jeffrey S. Flier, M.D. He is a former dean of Harvard Medical School.
