While Ivanhoe Elementary has the stellar reputation, in a better world Silverlake parents would not have to: 1) Spend $200,000 to move two blocks 2) Lie about their gas bill 3) Worse to have a lovely local elementary to send their children. So consider thinking outside the box.
For instance, our dear magenta-haired, rabble-rousin’ friend Dorit sent her daughter Liberty at Micheltorena and they love it. While Micheltorena has more of a conventional Title One demographic (which some LA parents consider a plus), aside from rising scores, Micheltorena boasts:
1) An SAS (School for Advanced Studies) program
2) FREE before and after school enrichment programs for students of working parents
3) A computer lab
4) A science lab in progress (as well as a new playground project in progress)
5) A growing and gung-ho PTA and Friends Group
