This is an excellent school. My son is getting the best education and nurturing from the staff and his peers. I looked at several schools and I am so glad that I selected Hayes. It is well worth the money.

Very best boys School in NYC. Teachers and staff are caring, concerned. The discipline is key in helping boys become men. The comradeship in this school is an example to follow. Great communication with parents, the parent portal is awesome for keeping track of your sons progress. Unlike other schools you meet with teachers more than once a year. So sad that my son is graduating but I love the person they have helped to mold. UpHayes and all its loyal men!
