SHSAT Test Prep @ Sam School (formerly, PrepMate)

It’s a myth that students who get 70% or more in school are also strong in SHSAT math, readng and ELA!

The test contains 114 questions and must to be answered in 180 minutes. Therefore, the challenge of the test is that the student would have to read, comprehend, solve and bubble-in the answer in about 90 seconds for each question. Most 7th and 8th graders are actually not ready for the highly-challenging SHSAT test and DO NEED a professionally-offered SHSAT Test Prep course / practice to excel in the test.

SHSAT Prep @ Sam School is a highly motivating,  rewarding and happy-learning experience. With several years of successful experience in SHSAT (practice tests and test prep courses), Sam School offers the most effective SHSAT courses, video lessons and test practice products that help the SHSAT-Takers to excel with high scores in the test and secure an admission in a specialized high school.

Sam School has the highest success rate in the SHSAT year after year. This huge success is the outcome of our result-oriented SHSAT Prep which gives our students the necessary subject skills, smart strategies, plenty of practice and motivation – and – challenges them to achieve. We are proud of our achievers who are now in some of the greatest high schools in New York. (Some of them are already medical doctors, engineers and other professionals!)

Sam School's SHSAT Prep courses and products also help the students to perform well in the school.

Yes, at Sam School, we achieve. Come, achieve your SHSAT dreams with us!
