Not nearly as good as Hunter. Compare the accolades and college admissions numbers for each and Stuy comes up short. Hunter College High School comes up less often in discussions of competitive NYC schools because the student population is relatively small and because it is not administered by the New York City Department of Education (the primary enablers of the crack cocaine epidemic). Give the place a good once over and you'll think twice about sending your kids there.
Jamal wasn't excepted to Hunter in the 7th grade so he took a shot at Stuyvesant two years later and did just fine.

A school for the criminally insane. Althought it is rumoured to be one of the "great" schools of New York, it isn't. The only thing great about Stuyvesant is its building, which was made quite recently. This building, of course, was originally designed for Brooklyn Technical High School but they turned it down. The reason you need a high score on the entrance exam is to ensure that you're insane enough to study for a test that makes little difference in your life.
--You go to Stuy?
--What's your SAT score?
--Uh huh, can you please tell me exactly how much material one would need in order to make a 50 mL coke can, with the top and bottom layers having triple layering? Keep in mind you are looking for the minimum amount of material.
--duuuuuurrrrrr...whaaaaaaa? Go away, that's too hard...go ask a Techie
