High Schools - NYC - SHSAT ?

I am taking the SHSAT next week and if I don't pass then what High School should I consider applying to?

I live in Queens....But I want a school with a good education not less than Bronx Science or Brooklyn Tech.

Like Townsend Harris.

Any opinions or recommendations?

Here is a link to the High Schools in NYC:

    They don't look at anything else other than the SHSAT test. That's why the paper received on 2-8-08 gave you an option of Stuyvesant already.
