The kids at Phillips Brooks are currently crammed into a small campus. It is distressing to see the knee jerk negative reaction of the Portola Valley Community. We have three Elementary School campuses in the Sharon Heights neighborhood. They have little negative impact to the quality of life and in fact increase the quality in many ways. Community does not just mean one's own self.

Mr. Shenk and the other Phillips Brooks officials are certainly not helping their cause by refusing to return calls from the Almanac so that we could hear their side of the story. I'm so sick of secrecy on the part of people -- from the White House to local government to private sector decision makers -- who are in positions to affect other people's lives so profoundly.

The town of Portola Valley is wise to be concerned about having this school in their neighborhood. I have frieds who live in the area where this school is now located in Menlo Park. Contrary to the above comment, they have a great negative impact on the people who live nearby.
