For nearly two decades, parents have looked to Clara Hemphill to help them find a good public school for their child. This Fourth Edition of "New York City's Best Public Pre-K and Elementary Schools A Parents' Guide" features all-new reviews of more than 150 of the city's best public elementary schools, based on visits and in-depth interviews by Hemphill and the InsideSchools staff.
This essential guide uncovers the "inside scoop" on schools (the condition of the building, special programs, teacher quality, and more), includes a checklist of things to look for on a school tour, and incorporates new listings of charter schools and stand-alone pre-kindergarten programs. It also provides the hard facts on:
Total school enrollment
Test scores for reading and math
Who gets in?
Teaching methods and styles
Special education services
How to apply
The book will be available on Dec. 13, just in time for kindergarten and pre-kindergarten application season! You can look for it at your local bookstore or order online here.
