Synopsis

If you lived anywhere else in the country, you would probably send your child to your neighborhood high school. In New York City, it's much more complicated than that. But what parent has time to research hundreds of school options? To help you choose a high school that is just right for your child, Clara Hemphill and her colleagues at Insideschools visited nearly all of the city's 400 high schools. This essential revision of the critically acclaimed parents' guide features new school profiles; invaluable advice to help parents and students through the stressful admissions process; and new sections on alternative schools, vocational schools, and schools for students learning English. Featuring interviews with teachers, parents, and students, this guide uncovers the ""inside scoop"" about school atmosphere, homework, student stress, competition among students, the quality of teachers, gender issues, the condition of the building, class size, and much more.

Clara Hemphill has two children who attend New York City public schools. She was the director of Insideschools.org, a service of Advocates for Children, an overseas correspondent for the Associated Press, a producer for CBS News, and a reporter and editorial writer at New York Newsday, where she shared the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for local reporting. Clara was also named ""an influential New Yorker"" for 2006 by New York Magazine.
