List of Specialized Public High Schools

In New York City there are several “specialized” high schools, which also happen to be the City’s top public schools. These schools are considered specialized because each school has a specific focus. For example, if your teenager is interested in the performing arts, you might want to consider looking into the specialized school for the performing arts.
