What is the difference between a special admission and a citywide admission high school?

Special admission schools have more competitive entrance criteria.  Students accepted to special admission schools must meet the school’s test score, grade, and attendance requirements. Citywide admission schools give less weight to test scores, but still set minimum standards regarding grades, attendance, and discipline records.
