I guess schools will have good and bad teachers as well as well-behaved and poorly behaved parents, no matter where you live!

I don't honestly know what the downtown middle and high schools are like, except that SJ High is also an Int'l Baccalaureate School. I've heard that if you're on the IB track you can earn a diploma that virtually guarantees you entrance to any college of your choice. The turnaround of Horace Mann School is a fairly new undertaking, so I'm predicting a similar effort in the middle and high schools downtown once the Horace Mann kids get older. But for right now, I'm guessing the performance of those schools is unremarkable at best, with the exception of the IB kids at SJ High.
