my top 3 would have to be harbor city elm. And university park tied for 1st and then sherwood elem. If ur kids are into music then creel has the best music department but thats about all they have going for them. I had so much trouble with imagine of mel that i transfered my kids to university and although the area has a bad rep that tags to the school it has been almost 2 yrs since we moved and my kids still talk about it and how much they miss it there. I have to say it was the most rounded school ive worked with. Sable is good unless u have trouble with bullies because they tend to turn things around where its ur kid who is the bully and i dont know much about croton or roy allen sorry.
