“Santa Ana’s John Muir Fundamental Elementary School maintained a place in the Register’s top 10 for a second year, placing at No. 6 even with a student population that is 59 percent economically disadvantaged. Muir’s primary advantage over other Santa Ana Unified campuses is that families elect to send their kids to the school, making it one of the district’s three such elementary schools of choice,” according to today’s O.C. Register.
All of my four children have gone to Muir and one of them is still there, in the fourth grade GATE program. So we know from personal experience that Muir is a great school. That might explain why the Muir administrators and the Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD) chose not to reveal that a fifth grader, as we reported on January 24, brought a pellet gun to school and waited for his victim to come his way. The O.C. Register ignored this incident.
