From the web site of Brooklyn Technical High School:
Cited in an issue of the "U.S. News and World Report" as the fifth largest high school in the United States with a student population of 4700. Brooklyn Tech graduates each year the largest class in the New York City public high school system. We are a specialized high school. Student applicants from all five boroughs of New York City are admitted after having passed an entrance examination that measures their ability to confront the high standards of a rigorous curriculum in engineering, science, computers, technology and the humanities.
In its eighty year history, Brooklyn Tech boasts among its graduates Nobel Prize laureates, corporate executives, city and state elected officials, university recognized scientists, engineers, architects and educators, as well as noted leaders in business, finance, industry, publishing and the arts.
