Queens High School of Teaching, Liberal Arts and the Sciences

Overview written by the school: QHST is a rigorous college preparatory high school on a beautiful and safe, 32-acre campus. With a new NCAA regulation sports complex and 21st Century College and Career Research Center, we prepare students for success in high school, college, and beyond. Students are programmed into one of three Small Learning Communities where they are known well by all. Our model supports students' achievement of some of the highest attendance and graduation rates citywide. We offer college level credit-bearing and AP courses, a daily literacy (DEAR) program, advisory program, senior electives, and a Teaching Institute. Community partnerships and our extended-day programs ensure that students continue academic and social learning beyond the school day.
