Getting child into Sylvia Mendez if you live in Alameda?
My wife and I are starting to research Spanish immersion schools for our Spanish-speaking daughter. (Getting an early start; she's only 2.) We hear great things about Sylvia Mendez in Berkeley, but we're not zoned for the school as Alameda residents. We know there's an 'inter-district transfer' process, but we're trying to gauge what the odds are. The school is very competitive even for Berkeley residents, which makes me think we shouldn't think of it as a viable transfer option. Do any folks have relevant knowledge or experience with this?
