Mission Hill & Young Achievers changes

One of the big items that came out of the recent School Committee meeting was changing Mission Hill K-8 from a citywide school to a North Zone school. Understandably, this has upset a lot of West Zone parents who were hoping to send their child to Mission Hill. Young Achievers K-8, another citywide school, is being relocated to Mattapan, where it will be an East Zone school. With the changes, you'd have to live within the walk zones to attend. They cited rising transportation costs as the reason for the decisions. For a full discussion on this topic, I'd recommend checking out the West Zone Parents Group.

The committee is expected to vote on Nov. 19 on whether to turn the Haley school into a pilot school.
