Prep School Kids, on the Upper East Side

In line for breakfast
Photo by myself on the Upper East Side, around 63rd Street and Madison Avenue.

Boys dressed for private school were waiting for their breakfast from a street cart.

My guess is that these boys were students at The Browning School, an all-boys school at 62nd Street, between Madison and Park Avenues. The school serves boys from pre-primary age (around 4 years old) through high school.

Subjects in high school include Philosophy, Latin and even Greek. There is a jazz ensemble and clubs to suit every interest. The list of classes sound like college courses.

Less than 400 students attend the school in total. Tuition averages about $36,000 per year. There are just under 200 private schools in New York City.

Hi Kitty. Do they have to dress like that everyday?
Are public schools in NYC as good as the private ones?

I am a sucker for a boy in a prep school uniform!

RedPat said...

Wow, that is a lot of $$ for schooling!

Kitty said...

Ha, Olivier!
Yes, I like street food too, ha.

Hi Washington
I think they do have to dress in uniform at certain schools every day.

There are some very good public schools in New York that kids have to apply to. The competition is fierce.

Some public schools are not good at all. It's tough for parents here, positioning their kids to get into good schools from a young age.

Ha, Elsiee, so am I!

Hi RedPat
Yes, I'm not sure how some afford having more than one child in private school. Crazy.
