Private Elementary School Buzz…

Overheard at a private jewelry trunk show Porcha and I attended to benefit Project Knapsack, Porcha’s nonprofit which provides school supplies to African children…LA socialites raving about Wildwood School and Windward School.

 The Pilgrim School is creating a buzz within private school circles.  It hired an impressive new head of school within the past few years. Sierra Canyon School in Chatsworth is also attracting positive attention from private school insiders and entertainment industry parents for its all academic and all-around excellence.

Curtis School accepted only two non-sibling families for DK for fall 2010.

The Willows Community School recently invited all parents to a meeting with architects to learn more about the school’s master planning process for long-term campus enhancements.

  1. Hi Jengod, DK is "developmental kindergarten" and it is for 4-5 year olds. It's for kids who want to leave preschool but who are not old enough for kindergarten. My son started DK at The Willows School at age 4. Thanks for reading the blog! Christina
