Individualized SHSAT Learning

Study smarter, not harder.

Our detailed SHSAT Test Prep score reports enable students to individualize their learning by revealing the exact areas students should target in order to maximize their SHSAT test scores.

After each SHSAT practice test, students will receive an SHSAT practice test report that shows responses for each question and whether questions were answered correctly or incorrectly. If questions were answered incorrectly, correct answers are provided on the score report.

Reports also show student progress and performance by concept area. This specific identification of strengths and weaknesses enables students to target their studies and prepare more efficiently.

SHSAT Test Prep Courses by Skill Level

student skills SHSAT
Our students come to us from schools all throughout NYC. They come to us with varying academic strengths and weaknesses. Placing all of these students into a single class would be convenient for us, but ineffective for most students.

At Five Points Learning, we do not believe in a “one size fits all” classroom model. Instead, we use a placement exam to group students by level so we can more effectively teach students by targeting our instruction to the needs of each respective class.

This approach leads to higher scores and is what has allowed us to be so successful in helping students earn the scores necessary to gain admissions into NYC’s elite Specialized High Schools.

SHSAT Test Prep Course Descriptions

We offer three levels of differentiated SHSAT instruction, yet multiple pathways to success. Here are a few possible routes:

If a student is placed into the “Foundations” class, we recommend that at a minimum they also complete the “Advanced Reasoning” course as well. For some students, this may be enough to earn an “admissions” score. Other students may want to consider the “Score Maximizer” class to capitalize on all course options and to fully optimize their score.

If a student is placed in the “Advanced Reasoning” class, they may find that this one class is sufficient for their needs.

For a student placed in the “Advanced Reasoning” class with a strong motivation to attend either Stuyvesant or Bronx Science High Schools, we strongly recommend the “Score Maximizer” class also be completed.

Five Points Learning helped my child in both her Algebra class and SHSAT class. In both areas she improved dramatically She loves her tutors there! and is now attending Brooklyn Tech. I will assuredly send her to the center again for her SAT. She loves her tutors there!

My teen attended Five Points for regents prep. She participated in the 4 student sessions Five points is highly recommended.and the tutor was on target and focused with excellent results. My daughter also attended the immersion section for science which proved to be successful. Five points is highly recommended.

- Fredericka J. review from

I came to Five Points with my 8th grade son less than two months before the SHSATs. I was feeling like a bad parent – how could I have waited until the “last minute” to get my son some help in preparing for this test that most kids seemed to have been working toward for a year or more? Five Points and Eddie were totally encouraging, organized and professional.Five Points and Eddie were totally encouraging, organized and professional. Eddie devised a game plan for the time we had to work with and in about 5 or 6 sessions my son had the tools and confidence needed to test into his first choice. My son is a smart kid but I honestly believe that without the strategies and tips he got at Five Points, he wouldn’t have done anywhere near as well as he did. I shopped around a bit and was worried about not spending the big bucks that a lot of the dedicated SHSAT services charge. I cannot believe that they offer anything that is not available at Five Points for a fraction of the price.

We Are All About Making a Difference

salma n SHSATMeet Salma Nakhlawi, a Five Points Learning student for four (4) years and 2013 New Visions scholarship winner for up to $20,000. In the fall of 2013, Salma will be heading off to her dream college, Middlebury College, as a freshman where she will pursue International Global Studies, Chinese, and Arabic. Before leaving for school, we asked Salma to share her experiences at Five Points Learning with other students. Below are a few notable comments she made.

Five Points Learning has inspired me to push myself because I can achieve what I work hard for.
Five Points Learning has opened my eyes to the world. I know about career options I did not know about before. I now know that I can start my own non-profit organization. I now know life is about enjoying what I do and I can do that by achieving high grades in college so that I can launch a successful, happy career.
Five Points Learning has taught me to aim high. Five Points has increased my confidence when it comes to school. I am not afraid to participate or ask questions. This, in turn, has made me have big dreams and hopes for myself. I know that I can achieve these dreams and hopes with hard work.
