We are currently in NJ, My D is in public middle school, 8th grader. I would say our public school system is about B+ - A- in our state level, average 750 students in one grade, huge.
We are looking for private day schools for my D starting from 9th grade. We picked two private day schools from NJ. We also want to consider some private day schools from NYC, since there is a possibility that we will relocate to NYC after my husband has being commuted to city for 13 yrs. (I think he is tired of the commute. )
Can anyone share some information on the private school in NYC? So far, we picked St. Ann's, Dalton and Trinity. Besides of browsing the school websites, we had very limited knowledge on Dalton and Trinity. About 5+ years ago, we toured St. Ann's and liked their teaching philosophy and teachers very much.
My D stats:
JHU-CTY High Honors (7th grade SAT 1800+)
High Honor Rolls, 6,7,8th grades (all As or A+s), All honor classes.
President's Education Awards in 5th grade

International Piano competition finalist
