After the recent exposure of many college admission scandals in the United States, the US media exposed the “pre-school education” of the United States is also a big money game. It also said that some wealthy American family had been tempted to raise their children from the age of five to get their children into a prestigious university.
Recently, the New York Times reported that some private primary schools and kindergartens in the United States make big money from wealthy families. The exposure of the famous universities in the United States led to the surrounding industries. The private kindergartens and K-12 schools were very expensive, but the wealthy families still send their children to these “right” schools so that they could have boosted their chance to enter the famous universities in the future. The most well-known college alliance in the United States is called the “Ivy League”, which includes well-known universities such as Harvard and Yale. These cost to go to private kindergartens and K12 schools are nicknamed “Baby Ivies” by locals in New York.
How expensive are these “Baby Ivy”? One of the private primary schools, called Brearley, has a tuition fee of $50,000 a year. This price does not include room and board. The school in Brearley is not the most expensive private elementary school in New York, and it is also at a medium price level. Although these private primary schools have high tuition fees, the admission rate is not high, and their admission rate is even lower than the top universities like Harvard and Yale.
Although “Baby Ivy” is expensive, many parents still have to send their children to the scalp because they think that getting these private primary schools can increase the chances of such a famous school like Harvard Yale, especially if they can get the recommendation of the principal. That letter is a good thing.
Recently, many well-known universities in the United States have exposed admissions scandals, including top universities such as Harvard Stanford, where the enrollment of wealthy people is bribing or disguised to give their children access to prestigious universities. For private primary schools, there is no evidence to report such incidents, but many parents expressed doubts.
