Bronx school honored as best in NY
A Bronx school has been honored as the best in New York state.
The High School of American Studies at Lehman College ranked No. 1 in this year's U.S. News and World Report's Best High Schools in New York.
The school is the smallest of the specialized schools in the city, and its core curriculum centers on American studies.
Administrators and students say what sets them apart from other competitive schools in the city is their sense of family, as well as academics and achievements.
