Alcott School and their advocates have secured funding for a new "Field of Dreams". The school is well rated and it's at the top of many of our buyer's lists that are concerned about good school districts. The new Alcott outdoor facility adds to the desirability of the immediate area for both those looking for a good school and/ or great recreational space.
