Schools

All parents want to know about the schools. Westchester has some of the best schools in New York State, if not the entire country. Unfortunately, due to steering laws, agents are not allowed to discuss the pros and cons of individual school systems. But I try to provide information so parents to do their own research.

Helping needy Westchester families with thier back-to-school supply list…

Most of us take the school supply list for granted. It's just on our list of "things to do." But there are needy families out their in our back yard so to speak - where such supplies are a luxury item and no monies are available to be set aside for this yearly ritual.

Grace Phillips – a Mamaroneck High School student named as a finalist in Intel’s 2011 Science Talent Search

As a former scientist I wanted to give a shout out to the fact that Grace Phillips of Mamaroneck High School was named a finalist in the highly competitive Intel 2011 Science Talent Search. Also of interest is the fact that 19 of the 300 semi finalists (or roughly 6%) were from Westchester NY schools.
