"It was an absolute honor to celebrate the achievement of Khan’s Tutorial SHSAT acceptances alongside Stuyvesant HS Principal Eric Contreras and Brooklyn Tech Alumni Foundation CEO Dr. Mathew Mandery. This year, Principal Contreras gave his speech as a Specialized HS parent in front of hundreds of fellow Khan’s parents whose children will also be attending a Specialized High School. Seeing the proud families makes me look forward to the day my own children will prepare at Khan’s for their SHSAT prep. Since the SHSAT is changing every year, I urge every parent of a 6th or 7th grader to contact Khan’s right away. Our classes are filling up and we are continuously adding more to our SHSAT curriculum to ensure another 371 acceptances next year!” said Dr. Ivan Khan, CEO & President of Khan’s Tutorial.
“I am thrilled to celebrate another successful year with our dedicated SHSAT families. I would like to thank our talented team of Instructors and Curriculum Managers for keeping our content current and competitive. Every lesson, every practice problem, and every diagnostic exam is carefully crafted and analyzed for our students. The results are clear - our team’s hard work has lead to the success of our students and their families. I am confident in saying that Khan’s Tutorial’s SHSAT program is the best in New York City,” said Mohammad Hossain, Vice President of Khan’s Tutorial and the Director of KT’s SHSAT Program.
