One of the five citywide g&t schools. It's one of the oldest and probably the most affluent, though I'm guessing the lower school at NEST could give it a run for its money now. The only way to get in is to score a 99 on the admission test and then get very lucky with the lottery, because they only have 50 seats. It goes through gr. 8 and certainly will set dc up for admission to one of the elite high schools. [ Reply | More ]

Oh I don't know, we said we spend a lot of time doing errands together as a family on weekends (husband works out of town during week) and I WOH, go to park if it's nice, a specific museum that child is obsessed with when weather is bad. Your answers should probably make sense in the context of how you answered your essays. We got into a highly competitive school to get into by simply being ourselves and we're really nothing special or impressive, just relatively normal people, not in a major donor category, etc. We were however, very committed to the school's educational philosophy for our child.

I mean I think that drinking regularly with breakfast is not normal, no.

You might need to try a few brands to see which is best for DB. The only one that DS didn't spit up was Enfamil gentlese. This includes all the organic ones and SImliac. Also formula smells HORRIBLE. Just FYI [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] This is an honest question, I am not a troll. In suburban schools with low or average minority populations, do administrators factor in race when deciding where to place children of color? Are children of color spread out equally among classes or are they grouped in certain classes so that they have support from other children of color in their class?

Honest answer: Neither. It's first come first served. No one has the time or resources to disperse to each class equally. [ Reply | More ]

What do you mean by first come first served? If there are 40 kids going from 1st to 2nd grade, and there will be 2 second grade classes and there are 6 total black students, how do they split them up? Assume no one is "signing up" for the school, it's just kids moving up a grade as per usual. [ Reply | More ]

Ours sends out optional placement forms where parents can say anything they think is relevant to the child's classroom placement for the following year. You could certainly say you wanted your dc to be with other children of color if possible, though I have no idea if they'd honor that. They also have to take into consideration academic level, boy/girl ratio, personality conflicts, SN, etc etc etc ... [ Reply | More ]

Not sure- I do know that schools try to make a good mix in each classroom in terms of splitting up the known troublemakers, keeping a very shy and quiet girl in the same class as at least one friend, making sure boys and girls are roughly split equally, and also making sure that one teacher is not stuck with all of the PITA parents (yes, my teacher friends say they split up the known PITA parents amongst the different classes as well). They never mentioned race as something that gets split up so I'm not sure? [ Reply | More ]

NP, you ask a good question. The administrators are kind hearted and want to help the minority kids by providing them with a supportive environment where all the minorities are together on one class. The admins did this in Larchmont, putting all the Latino kids together in one class. But then the ACLU found out about this and sued them. The admins were fired and the school hurt the Latinos by distributing them evenly among all the classes. Well known lawsuit, if you live in Larchmont [ Reply | More ]

As a former elementary public school teacher this is how the classes were made up. In May the teachers from the grade level got together with the principal. We had 3x5 card with each child's name and ranking of "high" "middle" or "low" for math and language arts. We also noted if the child was receiving special services or any other important information. The principal would then use these cards to make up the next year's classes. Unless there was a recommendention from the teacher about separating specific children, or a parent asked for a separation from a specific child, the classes were made using this method.
