My colleagues below have provided the websites that I recommend for evaluating schools. They give the perspective from the point of view of parents, which is much more helpful than the DOE site. I would add, however, that when you ask what are the "best" schools, that is really a subjective thing. What is best for one child may not be the best for another. For example, when my kids were in elementary school in Park Slope, all the hype was about one particular school in the North Slope, and my kids went to a school that was well-rated, but didn't buy into the then popular "whole language" approach to reading that was all the rage. By going to a smaller school, whose rating was insignificantly lower in my opinion, my kids were able to stand out as stars, which they might not have been the case in the overflowing, overcrowded school, and learning to read phonetically was far from the end of the world. What's important to you? An emphasis on the arts? On the sciences? Having athletic facilities? Going with the pack is not always the right to go, though it may be at times.

Dear staceystaceycagan:

Keep in mind that depending on your address you will be zoned for a certain school. You can go to the web page at NYC.gov to find out what school your address is zoned for:
http://schools.nyc.gov/schoolsearch/

If you want to get into a public school other than the one you are zoned for, your child will have to be tested to get into other schools within or outside your zoned district.

You may also want to check out the web site http://www.GreatSchools.com. If I can be of further assistance, please contact me direct. Either way, good luck!

Hi, I would definately go with the previous suggestion, especially the 'schooldigger' website. But also know that Warren and 4th Street do not meet. You probably mean Warren and 4th Avenue. There is a newly renovated school, I believe elementary, on the corner of Baltic and 4th Avenue, just a couple of blocks away.
