1.     To get into Hunter H.S., you need to take their admissions test January of 6th Grade. To get into Stuyvesant, you need to take the SHSAT test November of 8th or 9th grade.

2.      Hunter H.S. starts from Grade 7, Stuyvesant starts from Grade 9.

3.     Hunter High School is more of a humanities (English and Writing) based school while  Stuyvesant is more of a science and math based school.

4.     Stuyvesant is located downtown NYC, Hunter is on the upper East Side.
