As you know the kindergarten process wrapped up this week for private schools. My wife and I spent quite a bit of time discussing our options before selecting the best fit for our daughter. I was surprised by how much the admissions director / process at the schools influenced our view of the school (and our desire to attend). Some of the admissions directors were respectful and responsive while others were absent and/or incompitent.As we polled our friends we noticed a fairly consistent view of the best and worst processes (independent of where particular families were admitted). I'd love to see you post and invite parents to share their thoughts on the best and worst admissions programs in San Francisco.For what it's worth the process as a whole treated us quite well and we're very happy with where we ended up. But I do feel that your blog could hold the admissions departments accountable by inviting parents to post their views on the best and worst. The independent schools in the city have to be held to a high standard given the amount of effort parents put into the process.
