Last night we had the second meeting of 40+ parents who went 0/7 in Round 1 and where assigned Junipero Serra (JS) in Bernal Heights. This is a smart, savvy and energized group that has gone from originally being surprised and worried about being assigned to JS to now being excited and committed to going there and helping it continue to grow and blossom into an excellent and desirable school.
As for my own family's perspective, we *were* going to waitlist Clarendon (our top choice) in Round 2, but now we've decided we don't want Clarendon or any other big "trophy" school--we want to be at JS, which is a little gem of a school that we've fallen in love with. It's a small, neighborhood school with a strong community that can only get stronger with the growing enthusiasm and participation of the incoming parents.
So, if anyone out there is still on the fence about their choices for Round 2, I encourage you to consider putting JS on your list and come join us, get involved, and help us make this a wonderful place for your child and ours. If you'd like more info you can join our Google Group by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
