View Full Version : All NYC Defining Which New York City Private Schools Are The Best

Perspective from Emily Glickman, a top NYC private schools educational consultant, on the question:
Dear Abacus Mom,

Which NYC private schools are the best? Please tell me which schools are in the top-tier in your rankings.

Whether it's parents reading my blog or my educational consulting clients, almost everyone wants to know which NYC private schools are the "best". They want to know my Manhattan, Brooklyn, Riverdale, and Westchester private school ranking.

Here's the problem: best is subjective. How do you define it?

In my experience, rightly or wrongly, many parents define best as tops in graduate admission to Ivy League colleges.

The problem with this definition, in my view, is that Ivy League admissions stats tell you more about the students (and their parents) than about NYC private schools.
