Great experience! Ma McAlister is the best pre-K teacher in NYC. Her devotion to her students is unrivaled.

My son has been in this school for the last four years. He loves the teachers and is eager to learn. This schools has very experience teachers. Teachers here allow children to be creative and encourage them to express themselves. I love that they involve the parents in creating new programs for their children. The school gives you a great sense of community. I also like that the school provides a variety of extracurricular activities including the Young People Chorus at Washington Heights. The school is also very diverse which is a plus. This is by far the best school in Washington Heights-Inwood.

i wish my little girl study in this great school, is being kind of difficult to get her accepted due to they says there is not more room, but i have know for person that knows how that runs that they make concesion to some people who jump from being at the bottom of the waiting list to be the first one.. i think they should act honestly as we consider this is good to be the best in the neighborhood,...
