Regarding the May 13 article, "Schreiber Excels in Admission to Most Selective Colleges," without belittling the efforts of all involved, from the students and their families through their teachers and school administrators including Superintendent Gordon, I would like to remind your readers of a point that was missed in the article. The per-student cost to the taxpayers of Port Washington is right on par with the tuition at the cited exclusive private schools.
The article noted that Saint Ann's in Brooklyn, where tuition is $20,500, came out tops in the Wall Street Journal's poll at getting their students into highly selective colleges. Port taxpayers are footing costs at about $20,000 per student. And that figure is not only for the graduating Schreiber students but every kid in the district, from kindergarten up.
