Some people say that the best love a parent can give a child is to give him the best education. And Gu Ailing’s success at the Winter Olympics also inspired a heated discussion on parenting issues among Chinese Americans. I believe that for most Chinese parents living in New York, how to choose a suitable primary school for their children has become a question they repeatedly think about.

So in New York, which school district should you choose to choose which elementary school? What factors should be considered when choosing a school? Do you want to buy a school district room for the convenience of children going to school? Today, from the perspective of myself as a father, I will use the form of scoring (out of 5 points) to analyze the quality of each location in New York from the six perspectives of academic quality, work and transportation, living surroundings, proportion of Chinese, community safety, and school district housing . Pros and cons and make a summary

Today we focus on the analysis from Manhattan, LIC+Astoria (representative of the middle area of ​​Queens and Manhattan), Queens, and Brooklyn in New York City. Here, we also mention NICHE, a US-focused K12 school data website. All item data can be found above, and the basis for scoring is also partly from this website.

Here, we also mention NICHE, a US-focused K12 school data website. All item data can be found above, and the basis for scoring is also partly from this website.

academic quality

In terms of academic quality, Manhattan’s rating can be said to be far ahead . NICHE shows that most elementary schools with A and A+ ratings are in Manhattan. If only academics are a concern, then moving to Manhattan is definitely a good choice.

Ethnic proportion

I personally think that in addition to academic quality, the proportion of ethnicity is also a very important determinant . Chinese are ethnic minorities in the United States. If the school is not selected properly, children from Chinese families may not easily integrate into their classmates. In extreme cases, they may even encounter problems such as school bullying in the school. unfavorable.

Especially now in the information age, children will get information from various channels, and they will inevitably have their own thoughts on racial issues. In order to avoid some extreme racism issues as much as possible, it is particularly important to choose a school with an average ethnic group.

NICHE shows that most of the schools in Manhattan are about 70% white or even above, and there are some schools for boys or girls. In the schools in Queens, there are more Asians, and some schools account for more than 60%. L+A and Brooklyn are mostly 50% white, with the rest 50%.

#  transportation

Transportation is different for every family, after all, everyone’s work location and whether they can work from home are different. What I want to say here is that although the education of children is very important, there is no need for parents to sacrifice too much for their children’s education. An exaggerated example is that both parents work in queens. In order to give their children a high academic school, they went to rent a house in Manhattan. It is convenient for the children to go to school, but the parents spend 2 more hours commuting to get off work than before.

In New York, the subway is the mode of transportation for most people. Here, in terms of the subway density of each area, Manhattan is obviously the most convenient for transportation, while Long Island City and Astoria are also good.

#  life around

Since the child will live in the nearby area during school, the surrounding area must be considered, such as whether there are large supermarkets; whether there are quiet parks suitable for walking children; there are entertainment venues, Chinese restaurants, etc.

For the Chinese, the Chinatown in Queens is definitely the most suitable. Various Chinese Super Leagues, various restaurants, and all kinds of milk tea can be said to have everything in Queens, which can definitely satisfy the Chinese stomach of most people. There will definitely be Chinese districts in the remaining three places, but they are definitely not as dense and prosperous as Queens. As for the park, each area also has relatively few people and relatively quiet places

Living in a place must be considered a safety issue

# School district room

From a long-term perspective, buying a school district is definitely more cost-effective than renting. Below is a graph of New York housing price growth.

It can be seen that except for Manhattan’s overall cyclical fluctuations, other areas are growing steadily. It can be said that buying early and earning early .

In general, as the total score shows, I think LIC+Astoria is an area in New York that is more suitable for Chinese children to go to primary school. It can attack and defend, while ensuring the quality of education. Compared with other areas, traffic It is also very convenient , parents will not sacrifice too much because their children go to school; life is also more convenient, especially there are many Chinese restaurants and milk tea shops in Long Island City. Of course, everyone’s focus is different. How to choose a school for your child depends on the actual situation of each family.

Finally, let me introduce to you the situation on the Long Island City side of LIC. Since 2010, Long Island City has been transformed from an industrial area to a residential area, and it can be said that it has developed rapidly and prosperously. In addition to the arrival of large supermarkets like target and trader joe, the quality of teaching has also increased year by year . The scale of LIC’s primary schools has gradually improved, and there are currently A-level primary schools like PS78Q . Although the construction of middle and high schools needs to be improved, the New York government has planned to build new schools in the area. Moreover, there are many Chinese in LIC, so there is no need to worry about life and safety issues. The traffic is also very convenient, it hardly takes more than 5 minutes to walk to the subway station. There are also parks in the community, which are suitable for walking with children.

In general, the appreciation space of houses in the LIC area is very objective . No matter from which perspective, LIC can be said to be a high-quality area for purchasing a house.
