Labor day has passed and summer is essentially over . This year a large proportion of fifth graders will be heading to junior high school due to the baby boom of 2000 but don’t get scatterbrained on where to send your child. Here in Brooklyn there are various good schools and since it’s not high school or college there’s less risk if you make a bad choice. However it is known that many junior high schools require an entrance exam but they are usually private schools.
1. Brooklyn friends school It is a K – 12 school that has a history of prestige dating back to 1867. As a private school admission to this school isn’t cheap.With tuition of $30,700 you can where they get the money have a homework help center and give music lessons. This school known for having extravagant extracurricular activities such as their volunteering service and overnight international trips to Europe and more.
2. A.Fantis parochial school It is an Greek orthodox oriented school which offers many courses in Greek culture and liberal arts learning. One of it’s strengths is a relatively low tuition compared to other private schools at $5,000 to $7,000.
Speaking as a product of both public and private education my school experience was vastly better in private school. As the fact my parents were paying for my education put an incentive to work hard.
