The most expensive high school in America may have the best reopening strategy says Jessica Dickler of CNBC. Dickler writes:
By offering online school, tutoring and a Hamptons outpost, Avenues “has come up with three real possibilities,” Emily Glickman of Abacus Guide Educational Consulting said.
Of course, all of that comes at a big cost.
Avenues is also the most expensive high school in America, according to a separate survey by personal finance site GoBankingRates.
The tuition for Avenues New York is $58,700, more than double the average tuition at private schools across all grades nationwide, according to the National Association of Independent Schools.
As many school districts are scrambling to come up with a plan for the fall, the imbalance in educational opportunities is perhaps most pronounced when it comes down to the options some wealthy families now have — particularly with regard to public versus private school.
