Fieldston may be good for some people, but my experience there was nothing short of nighmarish. If you are a person who does not do well under extreme pressure about future, then BEWARE! in the middle of freshman year, we were given a sheet and told to write down what classes we wanted to take for the rest of high school. We were told 'it's never to early to think about college" and given prep books to help us start studying for the SATs during first semester freshman year. I am so thankful that I was able to get out.
Fieldston Lower is one of the best elementary school in NYC. I tour all the top private school and Fieldston is the best. My daughter came from Public School and she loves Fieldston Lower. The head master is a real educator very involved in the school.
