My cranky celebration of life in Alexandria (Virginia)'s historic Parker-Gray District.
I am so weary of the schools discussion. We plan to opt out of JH because the school lacks not only educational standards but diversity. Sorry Campbell but diversity cuts two ways. The school IS a dumping ground. Whether it was West End or special ed there's always a reason why JH can't succeed. Good luck to everyone involved.
While we still have until '08 to decide we are fairly certain that our oldest child will not attend JH next year. We are also leaning against the public schools and thinking of St Marys or St Ritas, should we be able to gain attendance. The Catholic schools seem to have a tighter curriculum and are fairly diverse. They also are a good bit cheaper than the other private schools.
