Packer Collegiate Institute headmaster Bruce L. Dennis says he was thrilled about last week’s large New York Times article that touted the Joralemon Street pre-K through high school as increasingly coveted by Manhattan parents.
“We’re becoming more of a New York City school located in Brooklyn than a Brooklyn school,” the Times quoted Dennis. It reported that this fall roughly 70 percent of the incoming freshman class will come from Manhattan, a figure that caused a buzz on parent chat boards like UrbanBaby.
