  1. Congratulations to the John K. Eliot School finding success with 4 year olds. May I suggest a name for this program? Why not call it Head Start? There is a saying among educators–"What goes around comes around"…….but then a new political force comes into power and decides to change or delete programs, successful or not.

  2. Good point, George. There is an excellent North End Head Start Program in the Saint John's School building on Sun Court Street off of North Square. Program Director Marilyn Frissora and her staff of qualified teachers and licensed cook run a tight ship, in full compliance with Federal regulations, and offer workshops and counseling to parents as well. A lot of the Eliot's current K-1 and K-2 bunch are fresh out of the North End Head Start Program, and this factor no doubt explains much of the success of the Eliot's Kindergarten program. We love you, Head Start!!
