So when we decided to move to NYC, I did what every good mom would do. I googled the heck out of the phrase "NYC schools." I found extensive lists of schools, articles, etc....But was pleasantly surprised that NYC has some of the best public schools in the country.
I know what some of you are thinking right now. I would never send my kids to NYC public schools because of THE GANGS. Well, after more research I found out that kids really don't have to declare a gang until their junior year, so we're good for a while.
In all seriousness, there are some really good public schools there. Some great specialty schools for the arts, sports, dance, etc... We're narrowing down our choices, but for now I think I'll stay away from this one:
High School Of Arts, Imagination And Inquiry
122 Amsterdam Avenue Manhattan, NY 10023
WHAT'S SPECIAL: Teaching artists from the Lincoln Center Institute.
DOWNSIDE: School is housed in a windowless basement.
