This is one of my favorite schools in the district. My eldest daughter had gone to Van Ness Pre-K through 5th. She had an amazing experience growing up in their enviroment. She had really enjoyed it there. This school, to me, has great expectations for the children learning here. Now, my other daughter is attending this school. I highly recommend Van Ness Avenue School. :-)
