My info


Staten Island Technical High School is one of the eight Specialized High Schools in New York City. Admissions is based upon student score on the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT). We provide a robust liberal arts curriculum including courses in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) and a cutting edge Career and Technical Education (CTE) program. All students take an Intensive Writing course and English and Language Arts curriculum to prepare them for Advanced Placement (AP) Language and AP Literature and Composition. Students take four years of mathematics, a variety of STEM and AP courses, graduate with at least two or three AP Social Studies courses, and take three years of the Russian language with an optional fourth year. We prioritize rigorous academics balanced with physical and mental wellness. Our goal is to develop strong social skills, exemplary character, scholarship, service, leadership, and citizenship for all members of the school community. We cultivate innovation through the development of 21st Century Learning Skills (Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical Thinking). Our school community is committed to equity and excellence by ensuring that every student understands how to use the curriculum to create meaningful impact on the world around them. Each individual in our school environment will feel valued and have access to opportunities and support to achieve their greatest potential and succeed in a multicultural society. The SITHS community fosters the development of well-rounded, passionate life-long learners through rigorous, engaging academics and participation in student activities, athletics, social-emotional and work-based learning, cultural responsiveness, and community service.
