I wish I could right now If it was May still I would have but I did not think of Upstate until the Middle of July and school starts next month for my daughter. It would have been to many things to do at once. Its her last year so she will go to high school up there which she is happy about.

Isn't Flushing's southern border at Horace Harding Exp? Mea culpa if it's not.

The address for my school says Flushing, so you know, I kinda assumed it was in Flushing, lol.

That's the mailing address. It's not physically located within Flushing's borders. When I lived in Maspeth, my mailing address occasionally said "Flushing, NY", even though it's a good 6 or so miles away from actual Flushing.

I don't get it. It's mailing address is the location of the school.. it doesn't get mailed somewhere else.

"The United States Postal Service divides the borough into five "towns" based roughly on those in existence at the time of the consolidation of the five boroughs into New York City: Long Island City, Jamaica, Flushing, Far Rockaway, and Floral Park. These ZIP codes do not necessarily reflect actual neighborhood names and boundaries; "East Elmhurst," for example, was largely coined by the USPS and is not an official community. Most neighborhoods have no solid boundaries. The Forest Hills and Rego Park neighborhoods, for instance, overlap.
Residents of Queens often closely identify with their neighborhood rather than with the borough or city as a whole. Postal addresses are written with the neighborhood, state, and then zip code rather than the borough or city."

That's certainly interesting, and good to know, but isn't the zipcode immune to that type of thing? Or can a zipcode be in two neighborhoods?

geralnique, here is a school that has a makeup of students you are probably looking for, but check the scores too.
