Forbes thinks it knows. Forbes ranks America’s private schools. They give top honors to a number of private schools in Manhattan and Riverdale.
Before you take this list too seriously, remember that Forbes is compiling this ranking as a marketing stunt. Rankings sell, so I wouldn’t blindly buy into their verdict. I would question 1) Does their scoring criteria really mean anything? and 2) Is it the school itself that’s so exceptional or the students they accept?
