Every year, many British families call me seeking private or public schools in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the New York City suburbs. While there is a British private school in New York, many British families seek American schools for a full cultural experience. Particularly in the younger years, British kids can easily transfer back and forth between American and British schools.
I recommend schools both in the suburbs and in NYC. Families are commonly concerned that American schools will not be sufficiently challenging, particularly since British elementary schools start a year earlier with the Reception year.
If you’re a British or international family seeking help with NYC schooling, I welcome your contact. Limited enrollment available so reserve your child’s space. 212-712-2228 or eglickman(at)abacusguide.com
