Buses 55 and 59 from Shady Grove go right past it. Take them from the right side of the station (as you leave the building).


Just be sure not to go toward Rockville. The buses should say instead "Lake Forest Transit" "Milestone" "Montgomery Village Center."


It's a 5 minute ride or less. The high school is on the left side of the road. Look for it soon after the Food Lion (on your right). It's about 2-3 lights past that.
