Your school looks like a beautiful place! I live in Upperco with my 3 children. I would like very much to send my 2 children to your school, ages 10 and 5. According to the "borders" I am told that they should attend Franklin Elementary. I am not at all pleased with this, due to the over crowding, and the location of the school. They presently attend a private school in Westminster. It makes perfect sense to me, that we live in the town of Upperco, and that they should attend a school in Upperco. Could you please refer me to someone I could discuss this matter with? I truely appreciate anything you could recommend. Thankyou for your help. Yvonne Dickerson 15240 Parrish Rd.
