Data shows schools of choice, wait listby Ann Sutherland on 02/22/14
Thanks to the curriculum department for providing a spreadsheet with all the schools of choice. It's available at the data list (right on the top of the list).
4,707 new applications were made for our children to attend schools of choice. At the present moment, over 2,000 are on the wait list (that's a lot--we had only 1000 last year). Biggest needs for more space are
350 at Daggett and Como Montessori schools
281 at Alice Carlson Applied Learning Center
A new Applied Learning Center is opening at J.T.Stevens next fall which will help with the demand there, but to my knowledge we have no plans to open additional Montessori schools. I am told that Daggett Montessori has the highest student performance level of any group at Paschal HS. Good going!
Parents and children are demanding choice in their educational experience. We need to provide it.
