A completed online assessment is required to apply to BHSEC Manhattan, in addition to the NY DOE High School Application.

About the Assessment and Rubric Components

The 2022-2023 BHSEC Assessment was created and developed by the BHSEC faculty and administration to assess applicants writing, thinking, and interest in an early college.

  • There are three parts to the assessment: two writing prompts and a short video statement.
  • The answers to the writing prompts are to be submitted through MySchools. They should be approximately 250-500 words or 1200-2500 characters per prompt. The answers should be well organized and well written, showing clarity, and creative or original thinking. 
  •  The video statement should be 2 minutes and uploaded to MySchools.  The applicant should be engaging, clear, and show signs of preparation.

For 2022-2023 Students will be ranked based on the following rubric components:

  • Humanities Response – 30%
  • STEM Response – 30%
  • Video Response – 30%
  • Grade Point Average – 10%
