This is a great school. Kids are challenged all the time and they develope excellent analylitcal skills from a very youn age. The chess club is one of the best in New York.

This is supposed a good school with high test scores, but really all they do is screen for smart four-year-olds. The teaching is unexceptional. We pay for extra tutoring for our child so we know he's actually learning something.
