Old building that needs replaced, High principal turnover. Hard to park. Upgrades needed all around.

James Buchanan El School 4

We love this neighborhood school. In the four years that my daughter has been at the school we have never had an 'off' year--always great teachers with flair who pay attention to each individual child. There is a strong community spirit at the school, an active PTO and a friendly group of parents who hang out with kids on the playground afterschool. We also love the Everyday math program, which the suburban schools still don't have. It's not math the way my husband and I learned it. It's a LOT better!
