I used JOSM to import the shapefiles and turn them into .osm files.  I went through and removed attributes that didn't make sense (which would be almost all of them) and added ones that did.  Everything appears to have a name and is either a school or a park (and contains appropriate attributes for that).

I ended up splitting the data into two files.  The first[0] contains simple polygons that outline the plots of land and was somewhat easy to get fixed.  The second[1] contains all the multi-polygon shapes that I didn't want to deal with just yet.  There are only a handful of these areas so I'm not overly worried about them just yet.

Everything is sitting up on github[2] at the moment and are available for anyone to take a look at.  I'd appreciate feedback on this.
