Viralmd - Thanks for the info!

Seems like it will be very hard in NYC once high school comes around even if they do get in. The commute is long from UES!

NYC is a great city! Nothing else quite like it..wish the public school system was easier to work with.

There are no public Pre-Ks in the NYC public school system, at least in Manhattan.

Most, if not all, of the good nursery schools have waiting lists and admission is highly competitive.

I heard Charter Schools are good, almost like private. You should check them out.

You can't lump charter schools together like that--each is a discretely run school.
