What Makes a Private High School the “Best"?

Try buying a new stereo system and every salesperson will attempt to have you purchase “the best” equipment.  But so many factors go into that decision.  You quickly learn that there is no best stereo, and the more you learn about what’s available, the more you begin to fine-tune your search.  The same is true when you’re trying to find the best NYC private schools.

Should You Switch From Public School to Private?

Often at this time of year parents are questioning the quality of the public school system and wondering if a move to private schools next year would be a better choice.  For decades, the private vs. public schools question has been debated.

Every city has one or more top public schools where admission is highly competitive and the quality of that education is excellent.  But what if your child wasn’t able to get accepted to one of the selective public schools?  Would the switch to a private school then be the better choice?

Why You Might Need To Restart the High School Admissions Process Now

It’s that time of year when public and private high schools will soon be informing applicants of their enrollment decisions.  Among all the top schools, seats are limited and stiff competition is an unpleasant reality.

What happens when that letter arrives and it isn’t giving you the news you wanted to read?  It means it’s time to sit down and do some homework.  There are a lot of schools that will continue to have openings and you need to spend time researching the best ones for your specific needs.

Finding the Best High School in New York City

Everyone wants the best, naturally. Especially when it comes to education. So how can you find the “best” school?

Let me guess; you started your high school search on the Internet. If you type in a few keywords like “best NYC high schools” or “top Manhattan private high schools,” you probably found a nice list of possible options. But did you really find the best high school for you?

I Love Graduation!

I’ve attended dozens of graduations in my lifetime.  They often follow the same format: a couple of prominent speakers (relative to the audience), a little laughter, a few tears, and graduates who don’t remember much about the ceremony a year, a month, or sometimes even a day after the fact.  Yet every once in a while, there’s a moment that stands out from the rest, ensuring that you’ll carry part of that graduation with you for a long time.

Why Transferring Schools Can Be a Good Thing

When you hear the term “transfer student,” you often think of the new kid in town or the person who’s been asked to leave a school.  But a growing number of parents and students are choosing to follow their instincts and leave their current school voluntarily, going against the advice of friends and school professionals in order to establish a fresh start.
