    I'm in dilemma which high school to choose. I have a option to send my daughter to 2 high schools.

    S1 - Rated 10 . Highly competitive. High number of Asian kids
    S2- Rated 7. 1 or 2 Indians in class. Very good after school program but with diverse population.

    Both schools have drugs problem.

    About my kid easily influenced by friends. Academics is good but need lot of guidance. Her preference S2 because she wants to be in challenging environment but my preference S1 since the teachers are known to be extremely strict at S1 when compared to S2. Any suggestions are welcome. Distance wise both are at same radius. Both schools have good and bad teachers. Hard to get into AP classes in S1 but very easy in S2.

    I would choose S1.
    Though it's tough to get AP classes.
    Teachers are strict , they must be strict.
    Her school experience would be enriched for college.

    Hi op

    Greatschools.org gives you breakup of many factors to consider not just overall rating. College readiness, Teacher student ratio, student counselor ratio, demographics, test scores, stem courses offered etc. it would give you more insight if you can compare everything and then come to a decision. Do involve your child in decision making process.good luck

    I live in a school district where the high school is ranked amongst the best in the country. There is however , a lot of drugs, lot of stress and pressure because of parents expectations , high competition and inability to keep up with the competition. You know your daughter best. Maybe she will flourish in S2 where there is less pressure ?
