One of our goals at City Smarts has always been to provide families with no-nonsense admissions guidance, to help steer students to schools that fit their personalities, play to their their strengths, and ignite their dreams.

In order to help the next generation of City Smarts families, we’re inviting both students and parents to share their honest feedback about New York City high schools. We want to hear the good, the bad, and everything in between. What do you wish you or your child knew before enrolling? What don’t they tell you on the tour?

This survey should take no more than 10 minutes. Your feedback will help parents and future high schoolers target the right school. Although we may share your feedback, we promise to keep names and identities strictly confidential, identifying commentary by school and grade only.

All participants who complete the survey in full will receive a $5 AMAZON gift card.
