Originally I was looking in Rochester but I have been thinking about Queens recently and have decided to move to Upstate after my daughter completes the 8th grade this year. I would like her to attend high school up there but for now I am looking for schools in queens now and have looked in Jackson Heights and Middle Village but i am looking for a place to live that has a diverse neighborhood and is safe. I love every race but i would like not to much of one ethnicity. Greatschools is where i look sometimes at the ethnicity of the school I am interested in and for one there was a high percent of hispanic like 80% i believe and i would like it to be a mix of like every ethnicity not to much of one race. I am hispanic but my daughter is used to being around a mix since she went to a school in Brooklyn.

Thank you!

I would recommend Astoria. Most of the schools there are very mixed. Same goes with nearby Sunnyside.

Thank you for replying. I am sending her to a public school and most of the schools there in Astoria are private according to greatschools. I looked at one though that was public in Astoria but it was 70% hispanic i just need the mix of races Thank you though! I will check Sunnyside.

Anymore neighborhoods will be greatly appreciated! I need to move before school starts for my daughter in September

So we're talking about high school here right? I went to L.I.C. not too long ago, and it had a huge mix of races.

Default most diverse

The most diverse public elementary schools are in Woodside, Queens.

Astoria, Jackson Heights, Sunnyside and LIC are not too far off. LIC has changed a whole lot recently & is getting pretty pricey.

Yes...there are many Hispanics there. But there are also many other races...and many of the schools are highly ranked.

LIC covers a big area. There's a section near Astoria which is nice, and highly desirable, and then there's the part near Queensboro where there's a lot of factories, and projects as you go further down.

Queens as a whole is diverse, but not all of the neighborhoods are.

If you're looking for a decent high school that has a very diverse student body, I highly recommend Francis Lewis in Fresh Meadows. It's very overcrowded though.

Aviation HS is in Long Island City. It's a very specialized school, though - mandatory airplane shop classes.
