#43 Best Public High Schools in New York
- New York City Geographic District No. 1, NY
Freshman: I have given NEST+M a 4/5 stars because it excelles in benefitting the students lifestyle. Most of the teachers are great at teaching, creating hands on activities and group activities that would most likely benefit us later on. But at the same time, they are leient enough to extend a deadline if it’s absolutely needed for the student’s life outside of their busy school life. Additionally, we have college week where the teachers would explain to us about certain colleges (and universities). And there is also a college office. However, there aren’t many clubs, NEST+M is still developing in clubs. A few examples, Key club, tech crew, debate, and student government. Correlating, the PA helps out a lot, especially in setting up school events. The hold bake sales and breakfast for the adults and teachers on some mornings. Overall, NEST+M is a gifted and talented k-12 school, with different students coming from all five boroughs, bringing in their diverse cultures and unique colors.

The Anderson School
#169 Best Public Elementary Schools in New York
- New York City Geographic District No. 3, NY
Middle School Student: The Anderson school is a small school with both academic challenge and a wonderful sense of community. The admissions process, which is highly selective and challenging, does not reflect the academics of the school, which are taught to every student the same way, regardless of their level. The teachers are excellent, and students learn a lot; it is overall an amazing school.

- PK, K-5
Alum: P.S. 182 was the best school for me to finish off my elementary school education. The teachers there really care about the students and want them to succeed. They found effective and fun ways for the students to learn. I was always amazed about the school's ability to locate talent in local students and they tried to develop and push the student so that they could realize and acknowledge their potential. Ms. Fowler was my 5th grade teacher in 2009-2010 school year, and I am grateful for her. I know that because of her, in dome way, I have been able to attend the best high school in America and a Tier 1 College.
