Come on. The good private K-8s get the middle of their class into schools too. It's not going to be a trinity or even riverdale. But Loyola, CGPS, Browning, etc .. sure. And you know what?

BTDT. Competitive schools (i.e. Trinity, Collegiate, HM, Riverdale, Dalton) do not like it at all when grades and scores are out of synch that way.

I think he could have done better in college if he hadn't been allowed to coast through high school getting B's and C's and doing basically no work. No one was on top of him. But it was the 80's.

That was me. When my dad died he was in a coma. I told him I was sorry for not being a good enough daughter. You never really can make it right. Remember that you are the kid and he was the adult. Would you put that much responsibility to right a relationship on your own child? There must be some reason the relationship was strained and probably has more to do with him than with you. I will say years later I in some way feel closer to him, can appreciate what he taught me about work and life, and I really do believe his spirit is with me and with my family - if only they would open themselves up to hear it.

The only reference to $200 is to thst being the median national home price. This was the example given of the effect. And the translation is that if your mortgage is for greater than $500k or your tax rate is higher than 39%, you are losing under Trump'/ plan and this also assumes that you have no other deduction at all, because those will now be gone too For those who do itemize, here's how the math works: Let's say you have a $500,000 30-year-fixed mortgage at 4.5 percent, and you're in the 33 percent tax bracket. In the first year of your loan, the deduction saves you just more than $10,000 in taxes. [ Reply | More ]

I'm 32, and I feel like lots of my peers are getting life insurance and building savings and preparing for possible financial problems, but I wonder if those are actually the problems that would lead to a downfall of a marriage and family.

We would have taken better care of our teeth, and thought about the aging of our parents and what, even slight, ideas we might have about that. I would have not worked more than part time, and I would not have stayed home. I would have made the financials work, even if we had to budget like crazy to have one parent "mostly" there.

If you're worried about keeping your marriage together, the thing to do is annually renew your vows. I don't mean a silly ceremony or party or saying empty words. I mean, once a year, sit down and have a serious talk with your spouse. What is going well? What is NOT going well? How are we doing as a couple? Do we commit to the life we have now? When going gets tough, the thing that keeps a marriage together is commitment, the belief that "we said for better or worse, and this is the worse, and even though I don't like it right now I'm going to stick it out because I made a commitment." Make sure both of you have that commitment in mind going into the start of each year. That's how you prepare for whatever is ahead. [ Reply | More ]

This is a really good question and I think you are wise to be wondering this... although there are so many variables, I don't think it is necessarily possible to prepare for specific scenarios. I think recognizing that the unfettered years are limited helps in appreciating what we have in the moment. For me, my 30's were relatively idyllic, I had not yet encountered the crushing responsibility of caring for two parents with Alzheimer's. Later I spent years lying awake at night thinking "how could I have avoided this? how could I have prepared?" At 54 I now believe the best thing we did was to enjoy our freedom when we had it. Dh and I quit our jobs and traveled for 2 years with our young dc's in our late 30's. It didn't do anything for our financial stability, but it gave us the family bonding that saw us through 10 years of emotionally devastating times. Now I am done caregiving for my parents, older, wiser, sadder. I don't know what challenge will be next but I am old enough to know they just keep coming. And you're right, there are many things money can't protect against. We had money to care for my parents but the toll, stress-wise, almost ended me. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Is the Trinity really the best school in the country? Or is it just hard to get in? What is this school really like? Any feedback? 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Trinity parent here. I wouldn't label any school 'best school in the country' it depends on your children. The worst thing parents can do is pick a school based on prestige. It is hard to get in to but not impossible. The majority of students are very bright, self motivated, and a bit competitive. There is also a nice community feel to it. I imagine most schools have that. [ Reply | More ]

High schools cannot be compared across regions. The exmissions of the TT are very similar. [ Reply | More ]

And unless you are gunning for HYP, there are many schools with very good exmissions. Colleges will not take all kids from Trinity or Collegiate. They take top kids from every school. [ Reply | More ]

This and think hard about the legacies from Trinity and Collegiate. Multi-generational donate a building wealth. That isn't every single HYP student from those schools, of course, but it's a disproportionate number compared to schools across the country that offer an equivalent education. [ Reply | More ]

Send more like a lot of diverse kids at both schools. I highly doubt it's people donating, those are the ones not getting in! [ Reply | More ]

It's not a high school. It's a k-12 and it's rated the #1 school in USA if you google from different articles [ Reply | More ]

Not a single person or entity on this planet can accurately compare high schools let alone elementary schools across metropolitan areas. [ Reply | More ]

It's not #1 on the only ranking I have bothered to look at- Niche. You don't really believe Forbes has any clue, do you? This is a publication that basically rents its name to any blogger who bothers to shows up. [ Reply | More ]

because people who rate them probably have an nyc bias, honestly. and schools that are k-12 are always private. so while TJHSST in virginia is a hands down better high school, it's not a k-12 so it won't be "counted" in whatever ratings you are talking about [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Toured the Garden House PreSchool this week. Is it me or is there absolutely no diversity at all? Every kid had blonde hair. we aren't diverse either but just found it odd, out of all the preschools we toured this was the only one with not even one child that was slightly tanned. Is this the whitest preschool in America. So strange 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Those places are 30 blocks closer. Separately, STM has no minorities. It is a Carnegie Hill closed society. Do you see any minorities in this? https://vimeo.com/98365211 [ Reply | More ]
