Emily Jones, one of five students portrayed in the documentary Waiting for Superman, tells blogger John Fensterwald of the web site TOP-Ed why she entered the lottery for Summit Prep Charter High in Redwood City, instead of attending Woodside High.

Here's the website for Summit Prep Charter High School. Sounds like a great school!
