From the Publisher"If Stuyvesant High School's students can embrace learning so enthusiastically, why can't everyone? Alec Klein, a young Stuyvesant alum familiar with the culture, devotes a year to diving back into the school's daily life in search of answers to that question. Klein's conclusions are surprising and have meaning for public schools everywhere."
— Jay Mathews, Washington Post education reporter and columnist
"Alec Klein, a masterful reporter and writer, weaves a spellbinding, sympathetic narrative about one of America's best high schools and how its remarkable students and teachers change each other's lives. A Class Apart also teaches an important lesson: that even the brightest youngsters — whom other schools often take for granted — need guidance and nurturing from caring adults."
— Dan Golden, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The Wall Street Journal and author of The Price of Admission
