I'm currently in the 8th grade, and I am doing well in school(high honor roll) and i'm the only asian kid in my grade. My school isn't very diverse and I want to learn chinese in school but there's no place I can learn it from where I live in a small town in PA. So I want to goto school in new york where they offer more variety and foreign languages. I was thinking about Collegiate school(1st choice) cause of classes they have and location. But I will hope to get in all honor classes next year as freshman in my public school(except math doing Algebra 1 CP because did not take this year).
If I do good freshman should I apply to school in NYC, or should I apply after sophmore year?
And I could use some advice(grades,tips,etc..) because I don't know much about applying to top schools in NYC.
