Newsweek ranked four NYC Specialized High Schools as among the top 500 in the country - all falling within the top 100.

Stuyvesant High came in at #3 in the country, and perhaps more interestingly, Staten Island Tech ranked #13 nationwide and number 2 in New York state.

At #62 was Brooklyn Tech, and just behind them at #63 was HSMSE (The High School for Math Science and Engineering at City College).

This is great news for Brooklyn parents most interested in Brooklyn Tech and Stuyvesant, but may come as a disappointment for those in the Bronx - as Bronx Science and The High School for American Studies at Lehman College are notable omissions.

Specialized High School, Queens High School for Science at York College did not make the list, but Queens based Townsend Harris was prominently placed at #19 in the country.
