Make no mistake, our outstanding results came from incredible sacrifice, team effort, and coordination from all parties involved. We know this may not seem fair, but we didn’t make up the rules, so please don’t be mad at the messengers. Note: Many parents call us at Kweller Prep to see if there is anything that can be done if their child scored just one or two points below the Hunter cut off. Remember, if you do not meet the Hunter cut off, you can also try for the Baccalaureate High School Entrance Exam and the Anderson Test in the 6th grade as well.
The scores for the 2015 Hunter College High School Entrance exam were 357 in MATH AND 346 in ELA. For private school students, the scores vary, but must reach 90th percentile or higher in both math and in English. This school is absolutely excellent, on the glitzy Upper East Side, and completely free, so competition is high and fierce.
Each year, approximately 25% of HCHS students are accepted into Ivy League colleges (Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, Brown and Dartmouth).
Please see Kweller Prep’s Article, “SHSAT: Frequently Asked Questions” to learn more about the SHSAT.
Please plan accordingly. This particular test takes place in October of 8th grade and again in Early November of 9th grade and the exam opportunity is open to all NYC students. Hunter High School is independently funded by the New York State Board of Higher Education and is run by Hunter College. Here is some more free advice: Do not fear taking the  Hunter Test if you need test accommodations! Expect it to be freezing cold and expect there to be thousands of parents and kids at the test centers that morning. Oh, and NY1 news reporters are at the scene each year filming and interviewing, so you might get a TV cameo!
A student’s essay will be read only if he or she scores at least in the 80th percentile on both the reading & math. 15: Although Hunter High School is completely free and technically a “public” school, many say it operates as an elite private school, comparable to Upper East Side schools that charge $40,000 a year in tuition. That’s a tough one, because my company employs both Stuyvesant and Hunter grads, and I don’t want to offend anyone by picking a favorite. Furthermore, I would rather my kids, not have to start 9th grade in a brand new school with brand new teachers, amidst the chaos and constant construction of downtown NYC. Keep in mind that the skill sets that your child will learn from our Hunter Prep course will help years later when he or she os preparing for the SHSAT. The ERB, Terra Nova, the Stanford, the Iowa, and the CTP- 4 are usually the tests your child will take in the 5th grade. Once the parents submit an online application for Hunter, you must select “no scores.” Then, the parent will receive an e-mail saying that since your child has no test scores, he or she has to take the qualifying exam in November. The $90 fee needs to be paid the day of the qualifying exam, November 23, by a money order (I don’t remember to whom).
Shortly after registering online, the parent will receive an e-mail stating that Hunter has received a payment. The test has no essay, the test is 2.5 hours and most kids finish early – they can leave after 2 hours. You must score 90 or higher on the reading and math – each section independently- to take the pre-qualifying exam— EACH section.
You indicated that your child does not have scores from 5th grade to establish eligibility for the HCHS entrance exam. We must receive this letter NO LATER than NOVEMBER 8th, in order to schedule your child for the Qualifying Exam.
Once we have received the letter from your principal or guidance counselor we will contact you about the procedure for sitting for one or both sections of the Qualifying Test.
Students must achieve at least the 90th percentile on the reading test and 90th percentile on the mathematics test in order to be eligible to sit for the HCHS entrance exam. If you do not receive a ticket for the exam by December 18th, you may reply to this email with your child’s name, address, school name, guidance counselor name and phone number.
Your exam ticket mailing will include all the information necessary for test day, including an overview of the test process, information for drop off and pick up of students, and exam scoring and results notification. The information here is simply a guide for parents and families interested in the Kweller Prep Program.
Hunter Acceptance Letter – Expect results to be released by March 15 via an email to parents! When you are inside your testing site, you will be directed to the test room indicated on your admission ticket.
Throughout the test, the proctor will write the time and how much time is remaining on the chalk board so that you can be aware of how much time you have left to complete the test. Some students have asked if they can do the mathematics section before the Writing Assignment. The cover page of the test has spaces for you to print and sign your name and your birth date and to write the admissions code that is on your ticket for the Entrance Exam. This test contains three sections: 50 multiple-choice English Language Arts questions, a Writing Assignment, and 30 multiple-choice Mathematics questions. On the answer sheet, carefully blacken the circle that contains the letter of the answer you select. You have a total of three hours to complete the examination, including the writing assignment.
If you complete the test before the time is up, you may review your previous work to correct for errors.
When you are instructed to do so, you will turn to page 1 inside the booklet and look at this section of the test. The passages in the Critical Reading section are all different, reflecting different types of writing. It is important to manage your time: monitor your progress when the proctor makes a new time notation on the board. You will write either an essay or an autobiographical piece (up to two pages) to assess the originality, effectiveness, and use of detail in your writing. You will write the full assignment on the lined composition paper that is on a perforated page of the test booklet. Make sure that your Exam Booklet Number and Admissions ID Code are written clearly at the top of pages 17 and 18. When you complete the Writing Assignment, you will see the directions on the page to continue on to the Mathematics section. The Mathematics section is made up of 30 multiple choice questions, each of which is followed by five possible answers: A, B, C, D, or E. If you finish the exam and there is still time left during the testing session, it is a good idea to check your responses, and look over your writing assignment. The proctor will give you the directions for the proper collection of the booklets and answer sheets.
Remember, this essay is often written written without the “I” although you can be subjective. Description, in trying indirectly to convey your response, will depend upon figures of speech to sharpen your using subjective language.
Formatting the Essay: here, you orient your reader by stating your thesis and by using your main idea details to create a mood in which you will write the descriptive essay.
Body – here, you rely upon interesting details and logical sequencing for events and the use of chronology or transitions to keep your reader connected to the purpose of your essay.

The exam takes place mainly at Hunter High School, on the Upper East Side of New York City. Students who achieve the highest scores on ELA & Math are “invited” to sit for the test. You can request that your child’s principal write a letter of recommendation to allow students who do not have any fifth grade scores to sit for a “Qualifying Exam.” This particular “pre-test” is usually held in late November We will elaborate on the qualifying exam towards the end of this article. Students from all 5 boroughs of New York City will be competing for just a few select spots. Hunter College High School is consistently ranked as one of the top public high schools in the nation.
Several more attend Stanford University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
If you get in and pass the test, you can get a full six (6!) years of outstanding education for free! If your child receives test accommodations already at school, you must send Hunter the 504 plan or IEP directly to the school via fax or email.
Kweller Prep has helped several happy students who received test accommodations  gain admission into Hunter and we can gladly provide references if necessary. With only a few exceptions, Hunter takes 50 students from its elementary school into the high school. Hunter is an open campus, so senior students can actually leave the school building to get lunch and walk around the beautiful upper east side area during free periods. Class sizes at Hunter average 20-25 students, which are significantly smaller than many public schools, including Stuyvesant High School, which averages 30-35 students. During the 12th grade, students at Hunter High School can take classes at Columbia University for transferable credit.
Hunter High School is consistently ranked as one of the top public high schools in the nation. Hunter High School is more of a humanities (English & writing) based school while Stuyvesant is more of a science and math based school. Stuyvesant, with thousands of students,  is located in downtown Manhattan, while Hunter, with hundreds,  is located on the Upper East Side. Hunter is affiliated with Hunter College; you can easily take classes there for transferable CUNY college credit. The Hunter High School test requires students to write an essay (similar to the SAT) while the Stuyvesant High School test does not. I prefer to spare my kids from that and would rather, if given the opportunity, opt for Hunter.
Kweller Prep staff and I do a tremendous amount of work with the college admissions process.
The exam is given to students who have no test scores at all or have lived outside of NY State or attended a school outside of NYS in the 5th grade, but are now residents of NY. But if your child did not, then he or she needs a letter directly from the school principal or head stating that the child didn’t take any tests in the fifth grade but is probably eligible to take the Hunter exam.
A delay in paying the test fee or not providing adequate documentation to HCHS to support a reduced test fee mean that your child could wind up being precluded from taking this test. Remember, if you have no scores, you have to go to your child’s school and they will tell Hunter that your child is not eligible because the school does not offer the prerequisite testing, but that your child should sit for the qualifying exam. They will look at the state scores from a parent plus a proof of new address in New York City. Once you create an application the system will createan e-mail address and it will have your child’s application ID. Next e-mail will say thank you for payment – your child has no scores so your child must take the qualifying exam.
There, students can take multiple proctored practice tests, and work through some of the toughest math and English questions on the Hunter High School Entrance Exam with experienced instructors.
We know this is a very important day for you and we want to make sure that you feel totally prepared. There is no advantage to being first on the line – all students are already assigned rooms. Test rooms can be chilly or quite warm; you may want to be able to take off a sweater and be more comfortable in a T-shirt if necessary. Parents will not be permitted to enter the test site with you, or to wait inside while the test is going on. You may choose to do the exam in any order you wish, but we strongly recommend that you follow the order that we have designed. No one test can give a complete picture of your skills and knowledge, but the exam will provide a sample of your thinking, comprehension, creativity, and problem solving ability.
You will answer questions about specific reading passages to show your ability to understand, interpret, and analyze a number of types of writing. There is scrap paper in the test booklet where you can jot down, outline thoughts, or compose a draft before writing the full assignment. When checking your answer sheet, make sure that you have erased any stray marks and clean up all places you’ve erased so that your answer sheet can be read correctly.
You should feel very proud of yourself – you’ve been a great student and you’ve done your best on a competitive exam. If you can find no other way to NOT refer to yourself, use the phrase “this writer” or “the author”, as in “this writer walked down the path of the park and almost tripped….” Use this method ONLY IF there is simply no other way to show you very specifically are affected by something as an other. Here, your purpose is to choose words and phrasing which might indirectly reveal a response to your subject. Simile, metaphor, personification, and allusion are essential tools for crafting subjective description. Selecting and arranging the details: As you move through the description you must keep aware of your use of descriptive words and work at maintaining the flow of your description. Formulating the thesis statement Your thesis should convey your main idea while it also points in the direction your descriptive essay will take.
Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.
Your child must score in the 90th percentile on the ELA and on the Math state test to qualify.
Many private schools offer incredible scholarship opportunities for those who score in the top percentile on the ISEE or SSAT.
Only about 6% of the students who take the Hunter High School exam get into the High School. In 2006, HCHS reported a record high of a 60% acceptance rate into the Ivy Leagues– as if 25% was not impressive enough!
Kweller Prep runs excellent 8-week summer camps in preparation for the specialized high schools. In fact the Hunter PTA is well known for raising millions of dollars for students and the school as a whole. By the time the parents realized they had to provide further proof (request was sent via an email they rarely check) to obtain a reduced fee, they missed the application deadline. Hunter has a ton of rules and regulations so please read everything carefully to ensure you properly registered your child to sit for this test.
There is no other way to receive an admission ticket for the test, so make sure to register before the deadline. Roughly 25%  are accepted into Ivy League colleges and over 90% attend a top tier college or college program. Lack of diversity at the school has been the subject of many news articles, and this issue was even featured in the New York Times. According to the Daily News, Hunter was referred to as being at the “top” of the money class.
To get into Stuyvesant, you need to take the SHSAT test in October of 8th grade or in 9th grade.
Hunter High School students are well known (and frequently recognized by me!) for their outstanding writing abilities. Hunter also allows students to take classes at Columbia University for transferable college credit as well. While the exams are both English and math based, the format is different and so are the question types. Use this email address for any other problems or questions you may have, such as a change in address.

You won’t be allowed to enter the test building until 8:00 AM so you don’t need to arrive before 7:00 AM, especially since you’ll be waiting on line outside in the cold! The first time they can enter is 11:30 AM when they are allowed in to wait at the dismissal locations. Remember the 4-digit code; you will need to record it on your test booklet cover and written composition as the Admission ID number.

This means that it is harder to get into Hunter High School than it is to get admitted into Harvard University, a school with a 8% admission rate.
Generally, Hunter will absolutely offer extended time if your child already receives this accommodation at his or her school. Your kid basically receives a booklet and can decide which section (Essay, Language Arts, Critical Reading, or Math) he or she wants to start first.
While many claim the admissions criteria may be the cause, Hunter stays strong in its belief that the one single admissions exam, offered only once in January of 6th grade, is the best and only way to determine a child’s entry point into this gifted school.
You have one entry point for Hunter (7th grade) but two entry points for the “Stuyvesant” test  (9th and 10th grade). You are better off having your child start test prep early then sit for the qualifying exam, then continue test prep until you get results so you don’t waste time. Make note of the entrance time on your admittance ticket – this is the time that you should be at the entrance for the test. Consider your own strengths and how much time you can allow yourself to spend on each section. Every fifth line of each passage is numbered so that you can find the part the question refers to. Until then, keep up the good work and give yourself hearty congratulations for making it through the Hunter test!

If you do not have ELA or Math State Scores, then you must submit your chid’s school’s scores from the private school directly to Hunter.
