Bard High School is small, with 2 separate locations; one in Queens and another in Manhattan.

Bard HS Video

Kweller Suggests: Study for the Bard Test and the SHSAT all summer and up until the exam. You should 100% register for the Bard Test after taking the SHSAT test. This way you’ll have all that content and knowledge still in your head from the SHSAT, a test you took only a week prior. The Bard test is an easier version of the SHSAT, plus an essay. If you pass the multiple-choice section, you’ll be granted an interview. Make no mistake, the Bard school wants the Stuyvesant kids and vice versa, so you need to make sure that you prepare well for this entrance test. You can register for the Bard test as early as September; be sure to take the test as close to the SHSAT test date as possible. Personally, I really like how small, safe and secure Bard HS is. I really like the school administration, which makes the school feel like a warm, welcoming environment for all. Basically, Bard High School is a completely free, public, screened high school where students can take advanced classes for transferable college credits starting Grade 11.

Applying to Bard High School

The following is the minimum required of all students who apply in 9th grade to BHSEC Queens:

1. A grade point average of 85% or above

2. No more than 5-10 unexcused absences for the school year

3. Completion of the BHSEC Math and Writing Assessments

4. Complete the Department of Education’s High School Application

6. Interview

How to Apply

1. If you fit our admissions profile, reserve a seat at our next Writing and Math assessment. If applying to both schools, you only need to take the assessment once. Please do not register for an assessment at both Queens and Manhattan.

2. Bring a copy of your 7th grade report card (if applying to 10th grade, please bring your 8th grade final report card) on the day you are scheduled to take the assessment. The report card is for our records and will not be returned to you.

3. Rank BHSEC Manhattan and/or BHSEC Queens on your Department of Education (DOE) High School Application. Remember, if you are applying to both BHSEC Manhattan and BHSEC Queens, you need to list them as two separate choices. The Program Code for the Manhattan campus is M51A, and the Program Code for the Queens campus is Q74B.

4. Students who demonstrate strong abilities in their grades and the assessment will be invited to an interview at BHSEC. Not all students will be asked to interview at BHSEC. We will contact students by email if they are eligible for an interview. This is the final step in the BHSEC admission process.
Students who are applying from private or parochial schools are advised to speak with your school’s principal or headmaster to obtain a Department of Education High School Application.

Students may rank up to 12 non-specialized programs/schools on the Department of Education High School Application in addition to the specialized and audition high schools. Please note that students who apply to both BHSEC Manhattan and BHSEC Queens must list these as two separate choices. Please review program/school choices and carefully prioritize the list. We strongly recommend that you seek advice from your guidance counselor and review the NYC High School Directory before ranking programs.

Bard’s Acceptance Letter:

Bard is a liberal high school, and teachers and students voiced their political opinions after the election:

Trump’s Rhetoric Is Personal, Students of Diverse Queens School Protest (as seen in the news)

LONG ISLAND CITY — Dozens of students walked out of class at Bard High School Early College in Queens on Wednesday, chanting and holding signs to protest President-Elect Donald Trump.

Kids from the school filled the sidewalk outside their building on Thomson Avenue and 30th Street at about 1:30 p.m. to picket and discuss their fears in the wake of Trump’s upcoming presidency.

“We’re one of the most diverse schools in a very diverse city, so having a president-elect with a very hateful rhetoric that targets almost every single student at our school — we felt that was unacceptable,” senior Izzi Stevenson, 17, told DNAinfo New York.

She said many of her classmates have been participating in protests since the election — including one on Tuesday, where hundreds of the city’s high schoolers marched through Manhattan — but decided to organize their own to support fellow students feeling fearful in the wake of Trump’s win.

Among those is Murshika Emu, 17, a senior at Bard High School Early College who helped organize the student protest Wednesday.

“After the election, the whole school community was overwhelmed with fear and grief,” she said. She worries the head scarf she wears might make her a target for anti-Muslim harassment.

“Hearing [Trump’s] opinions on Muslims — it’s frightening, because I don’t want to be scared to walk around in my own country,” she said, adding that she tries to keep a “low profile” and be more cautious while taking the subway.

“I stand in the middle of the platform just in case someone is going to push me off,” she said.

The school, a partner of Bard College where students take college-level courses in their last two years, serves around 600 kids — 34 percent of them Asian, 11 percent black, 17 percent Hispanic and 35 percent white, according to Department of Education statistics.

“We have such an amazing diverse community at this school,” said senior Kate Howell, 17. “It’s really about showing our fellow students that we’re all together, and we’re going to stand up for them.”

Thousands of New Yorkers, of all ages, have taken to the streets since Election Day to protest Trump’s victory, rallying outside his hotels and Trump Tower.
