Rosa Parks vs Ruth Acty vs BAM?

We're just about to start taking a few tours to decide on our top choice for an incoming K student, but we're a bit clueless on how to choose. I would love to hear from any current parents of Rosa Parks, Ruth Acty, or BAM students- what do you love about your school? How did you decide it was the right one? Aside from location and start time, we're not sure what qualities to look for to see if it would be a good fit. Thanks so much!

The schools in NW zone are all pretty great - most folks i know used location and start time as the guiding light for picking the school :)

We’ve been at BAM for six years now with one kid in fifth and one is second. We have had an amazing experience. The teachers and staff are phenomenal. The parent community is also great, with an active PTA. Our younger kid is in LEARNS (the afterschool program) and loves it. Everyone knows our kids and they feel seen and supported.
