The Queens High School Of Teaching, located in Bellerose Queens, is an Educational Option School. Education Option programs are meant to service a wide range of academic performance. Based on English Language Arts (ELA) standardized test scores from the prior school year, students will be matched to Ed. Opt. programs based on the flowing distribution: 16% from the high reading level; 68% from the middle reading level; 16% from the low reading level. Half of the student matched to our Ed. Opt. program will be selected based on their rankings from the school; the other half will be selected randomly. If you score in the top 2% of all student in the City on your previous year's ELA reading exam, & you listed an Ed. Opt. program as your first choice on your application, you are guaranteed a match to that program.
