2. The Calhoun School

If you're looking for a diverse school that will take your child from preschool all the way through senior year, the Calhoun School is an excellent choice.

It prides itself on a diverse atmosphere that encourages growth and learning.

Rather than forcing children to memorize information for tests and quizzes, then promptly forget it, the teachers instead teach the kids to actually learn.

They're taught to question, argue, explore, and to thirst for knowledge rather than resign themselves to it.

The Calhoun School is also located on the Upper West Side, and the locale definitely plays a part in the curriculum.
