Dependability is the allure of this south-central neighborhood. DPS Slavens K-8 is located in the heart of the neighborhood and has consistently had good scores.  Families love the district’s suburban feel—you’ll often spot kids riding their bikes or scooters along Wellshire’s wide streets—but residents of the ’hoods mid-century ranches and new-build mansions are close enough to University and Washington Park that they don’t feel the city’s conveniences are out of reach.
