More and more families keep moving into NE Seattle to take advantage of our good schools. What do these schools have going for them? What challenges exist for the elementary and middle schools in our area? Current families, families with kids in the pipeline, and community members alike can hear first hand from school staff.
An agenda and list of presenters will be released in the near future.
