Dear Families of the Class of 2025 and Transfer Students, 


Welcome to the HSTAT community!  We are very excited that your child will be joining us next year and we are already planning for their arrival. There is a lot to do and we are asking for your help. We know this is a lot of information and many surveys to complete.  As a thank you, we will send HSTAT swag to the families who complete all of these forms by Sunday, June 13th. You can find this all on our website as well at

We will be sending another email soon with a welcome video from our tremendous ninth grade team and a virtual tour of our beautiful building. If you are part of our Nest program, you will be contacted by a member of our Nest team. In the meantime, please be in touch if you have any questions.

Summer Camp/Summer Bridge/Nest Summer Bridge

We will be offering a summer bridge program this summer beginning Wednesday, July 7, and running through to July 29 from 9 am to 1 pm. During that time, students will engage in hands-on activities and projects that are designed to build community and help students to feel comfortable in our building.

Summer Bridge: Deadline to register is June 11!

We are also asking that your child complete a series of forms. Those forms include:

  1. An interest survey that will help us get to know your child and will also help us create their schedule for the fall. 
  2. A Spanish diagnostic that will help us place them in the correct level Spanish course for the fall. 
  3. The application to our Computer Software Engineering Program. 
  4. Summer School Interest Survey
  5. School Support Survey

Letter from our Parent Coordinator

We are so lucky to have Barbara Yarshevitz as our parent coordinator. 

Supports for Fall

We know that the last year has been difficult for many of our students and families. We want to be able to provide the support that our students need in the fall.

NYC Schools Account

If you have not yet activated your child’s NYC Schools Account, please do so. This account will allow you to update and access important information. You will need a creation code in order to access your child’s information. Please reach out to your child’s current school as we do not yet have access to your child’s creation code.
