(MS)2 Supports School Choice!
Why we're thankful for school choice.
“Since our children became of school age, they have been enrolled in charter schools in Washington, D.C. The ability to choose any charter school within D.C. has always been a plus. We are not restricted by “boundary schools” and that empowers us as parents to select what we feel is the best school for our children..” Read on to learn more about the Edmonds family, why they support school choice, and why they chose (MS)2 for their children!
