The Smith School is an exceptional private school in New York City. I transferred both my kids there after they were failing in public school. Its' small class sizes and individualized instruction gave them the personalized attention they needed to succeed. This school is remarkable in that they accept kids with and without disabilities - both types in the same classes working side-by-side. Unbelievably, there are no bullies and no cliques in this school - it truly has a family atmosphere, yet excels in prepareing all the kids for college. I strongly recommend that any NYC parent (whose kids are struggling at other schools) check out the Smith School.
I am currently a senior at the Young Women's Leadership School and I can positively say TYWLS has made me an outgoing women. Now that I am off to college I feel very prepared and motivated to obtain an amazing career. My wish is for girls all over New York to be able to have the opportunity to attend such an outstanding school. TYWLS has changed my life and once I have children of my own I'll be sure to send my girls there.
I was one of the first students to attend this school when it first opened.
