Start low on the arete at crimpers and move up one move then trend right toward some tiny edges at about mid-height. Establish your feet then make a hard throw/series of bumps up and left to the thank-god slot. From here, top out the moderate slab above.
Requires big moves and may be harder for short climbers. This problem has a very good sequence and movement which sets it apart from other routes at the School Yard. A neo-classic!
Uphill on the cliff line from problem #2 (I believe)/the beginning of the School Yard in Davin's book. Look for an arete right next to a boulder that forms a short corridor that has just enough space to squeeze a regular sized pad (or 2) in.
Pads and spotters in the corridor formed by the rock 4 feet behind the problem (exactly enough space to squeeze your pad in).

School Yard is known for its layered sandstone rock formations, this was a nice find that gave a little variation to the norm of that area.

Sorry, but that is not an FA. Many problems at the School Yard did not go in the book because of the editor. For instance, the entire north third of the area did not get put in the book. Bouldering and all its possibilities have been going on at the School Yard as far back as the '70s. Hence no names in the book, since it has been done before.
