During this presentation, Maurice will cover the key factors involved in the selection and matching process for selective NYC public high school admissions. This will include key strategies families must understand to optimize their child's candidacy for selective NYC high schools. Maurice will also debunk common myths and address the various perspectives on matching, from families to high schools and city policy. He will provide practical advice on how students can position themselves for success in this complex process, and what families must prioritize and when.
