Dear parents, teachers, and members of the Big Apple Academy’s extended family,

Our students’ determination, perseverance, and continued hard work have surely paid off with the great results on the Specialized High School Admission Exam. This year the SHSAT outcome exceeded all of our expectations: 95% of our students have been accepted into the best rated High Schools of New York City such as Stuyvesant, Brooklyn Technical, Staten Island Technical High School, LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, Leon M. Goldstein High School for the Sciences, James Madison High School, and Edward R. Murrow High School.

Exams may not be the ultimate tests of life, but they are definitely the ultimate tests of character. By passing these exams, it has been proven that our students have strong characters, and are full of determination and commitment.

I wish a great success and longevity to our SHSAT Preparatory Program launched by the English Department five years ago, and look forward for further advances in Mathematics. I am confident that with the joined effort of teachers and parents, our school will continue to keep up the banner of excellence – educating multiple generations of confident learners for years to come.

Best Regards,

Vlad Gorny
