Manhattan Center for Science and Mathematics (also known as MCSM) is a public high school in New York City, at East 116th Street between Pleasant Avenue and FDR Drive in the East Harlem neighborhood in the north-eastern part of the borough of Manhattan. [1]

Established in 1982 to replace Benjamin Franklin High School, Manhattan Center is presently a four-year high school which provides students with a curriculum that emphasizes mathematics and science. Like all New York City high schools, admission is by application. Admission priority for Manhattan Center is given first to students attending the Isaac Newton Junior High School, housed in the same building as Manhattan Center; second to students residing in District 4; and then to other residents city-wide. [1]

The academic performance of this school is extremely high, based on Regents scores, scholarship and a 95% graduation rate. MCSM is consistently one of the highest performing schools in the State of New York. In 2007, David Jimenez became the Principal. In 2009, MCSM graduated 97% of its students. [1]

Students graduating from Manhattan Center have attended colleges and universities such as Amherst College, Brown University, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Wesleyan University, Yale University, Morehouse College, Howard University and many others around the country. [1]

The curriculum includes AP courses and special programs, as well as research and internship opportunities. [1]
