New York City's Best Public High Schools by Clara Hemphill
Book DescriptionIf you lived anywhere else in the country, you would probably send your child to your neighborhood high school. In New York City, it's much more complicated than that. But what parent has time to research hundreds of school options? To help you choose a high school that is just right for your child, Clara Hemphill and her colleagues at Insideschools visited nearly all of the city's 400 high schools. This essential revision of the critically acclaimed parents' guide features new school profiles; invaluable advice to help parents and students through the stressful admissions process; and new sections on alternative schools, vocational schools, and schools for students learning English. Featuring interviews with teachers, parents, and students, this guide uncovers the "inside scoop" about school atmosphere, homework, student stress, competition among students, the quality of teachers, gender issues, the condition of the building, class size, and much more.
