We manged to get to the Noe Valley Rec Center fair yesterday morning despite the rain (and our car battery dying). The school fair was a great introduction to many schools in the SE area of the city. It was packed with prospective families and school representatives. We didn't get a chance to attend the PPSF session in the morning. If you did, let us know your thoughts in the comments. We spoke with several schools, Leonard Flynn, Junipero Serra, St Philip, Glen Park, Fairmount, Starr King, Finn Barr, Mission Dolores Academy, Edison Charter...It did get a little blurry at the end. Walking away I was most impressed with Glen Park, Edison Charter, Starr King and Mission Dolores Academy. I was also delighted to hear such great things about Leonard Flynn. These schools will be on my list for touring for sure. We also got a few moments with a mom from Miraloma. I know this school is one of the hotter schools right now. I look forward to visiting the school to learn more. We didn't get a chance to talk to McKinley or Monroe. We also didn't talk to any of the privates since we most likely won't go that route.
I'm interested to hear your thoughts if you attended and which schools stood out. I felt after hearing about a few of the schools, they started to blend together and we wont' be able to really get a feel until we tour. I'll post more robust thoughts and facts after I start touring.
