OP: Yes pretty much. Dont have DCs but want to know more or less how many years we have to do this now..I guess parents have to start when the kid starts school (Age 6?) and then go to age 14 (freshman yr of HS)? But wouldnt junior high schools offer school lunches for purchase? [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Moving to NYC soon and looking at K, ideally Catholic UES. How can you find out the test scores of private and parochial schools? I've heard that St. Ignatius Loyola, St. Stephens are good, Convent of the Sacred Heart and Marymount are too but much more $. Any advice? Thanks! 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

they are not published. the test scores wouldn't help because they do not do test prep in private schools for ERBs. Loyola and St Stephens are just diocesan schools (around $8k tuition) so maybe the diocese has some info. [ Reply | More ]
