    I sent my daughter to Garden Place on purpose! They had a wonderful elementry IB program that failed to receive the DPS district support is deserved. The staff needed to constantly sell itself. The teachers that taught in this school for the pre-IB program were fabulous and I only wish they would move to my sons elementry school. The parent involvement was extemely high when you consider the socio-economic back ground of many of the students. Not many of the parents could afford to be 'stay-at-home' parents.
