I grew up in MInerva and attended all three schools. There have been a lot of changes since then. First of all, if your kids are sharp, look for a better school. Minerva has a 4/5 rating. Secondly, Chesapeake has created a lot of traffic that never visited Minerva before. This has brought about increased noise, crime, and busyness that has taken the area from what it once was.
Finally, Minerva will always be a great place to be from, but, I'd hardly expect my kids to stay there throughout their adult lives.
Good luck with that.
