Former student, currently studying at a graduate program at Columbia University. I graduated in 2004. I'll break it down into several parts: Academics: Definitely superior. Of course, compared to the general public schooling system in NYC, that's not saying too much. But regardless, this school is certainly ...  Read more

I think the administration is flooding this site with positive reviews. It's a basic fact that the "Tiger Moms" and private tutors have led to the continual success of students at this school. The students (I am an ex-student with a sister currently enrolled) thought the "Blue Ribbon" award was a joke. ...  Read more

We are now 6 months into the school year and I feel I can speak from a place of knowledge and experience regarding this school. Academically, this school excels beyond expectation. Both my children are writing, ...  Read more

My daughter had been in Trans since Pre-K3 (our 6th years now). I cannot say I agreed with every decision made by the school but overall we are happy. I had asked my daughter if she wants to go to public school within our school district to avoid the commute, and she said no, she likes the school. ...  Read more

My child attends the school now but will not be returning next year. They utilize the old school method of teaching that includes punishment and demerits for not following their rules perfectly.
