Carpenter Parents Step Up for Kids

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/education/article/carpenter_parents_step_up_for_kids_20040528

You can hear envy in the voice of Los Angeles City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel. It is a subtle envy but one well known to certain parents in Studio City who, like Greuel and her family, live next to, but not in, "The Promised Land." "We're actually just outside the boundary of Carpenter," Greuel said. She refers to Carpenter Avenue School, where about 900 kids from kindergarten through fifth grade receive arguably the finest primary education in the notoriously dysfunctional Los Angeles Unified School District. To live within the boundaries of Carpenter, or to get a rare waiver permit allowing your child to go there, is a sought-after prize.
