And the Daltons, HM's, Fieldstons that aren't might see a dip.
Seems like very short-term thinking.
Hopefully,DC is applying to Dalton,Fieldston for HS.
I don't know if the TT schools will be less desirable, but I do think some people who were TT or bust in the past might rethink that and consider some lower tier schools. The pandemic has certainly shed some light on each school's priorities.
Right, we are already at a school and would considering going to a lower tier school based on how they handled the pandemic.
HM is in person.
And that caused them to have to shut down all of middle and upper for 2 weeks. There is no "right answer" here to get kids on campus more.
@Anonymous Much better to shut down for 2 weeks than to have never been open in the first place. Kids have had time to meet their classmates and teachers, understand rules, prepare for online. And in 2 weeks they'll be back in the classroom.
But mostly was just correcting the OP who said that HM isn't in person and would therefore see an admissions dip.
So many, many, many children who would shine at a less competitive school struggle at the well-known TT, often competing against ringers who've been trained since birth to knock the academics out of the park. See Race to Nowhere and the epidemic of parents blaming schools for their children's anxiety and depression (here's a tip: look closer to home!).
