    I have 3 granddaughters a Colombian. All of them especially the 1st grader is doing great. They love their school. The teachers communicate with parents and their outreach to the community is better than I've seen at others schools. Trending upward is hard. I think it is shameful to keep attacking a neighborhood because their scores aren't what they should be yet or because of the lack of mixed races in the school. How hard is it to improve when other schools are allowed to steal your top students. Are they better schools or just have better PR.
