The city’s most prestigious high school has barred teachers from lowering scores for kids who miss tests and take them later, The Post has learned.

New Stuyvesant High School principal Seung Yu issued a memo telling staffers that kids who blow off a test “for any reason” must be given a makeup date – and that they can’t have their exam grade dinged.

“Stuyvesant is more focused than ever on students mastering rigorous academic content, and this updated grading framework aligns with NYCDOE academic policy,” said spokeswoman Danielle Filson.

“These are our city’s best and brightest kids and we’re weakening their accountability on purpose,” said one Stuyvesant source.

Stuyvesant is currently 73 percent Asian, 19 percent white, 3 percent Latinx and 1 percent black, according to DOE figures.
