Re: Where do you send your kids for school???

public charter school. We live in a great school district. We chose the charter over regular because of the school size (very small), their food allergy handling (their size plays a big part in how well they handle food allergies too) and the arts curriculum.

Re: Where do you send your kids for school???

My oldest two boys are in public school. We live in GA and supposedly this is the "best" school district in the state but I disagree (it's more like the wealthiest area, which does not make it the best school imo. The Atlanta "Real Housewives" kids went to my kids' school - yes they sent their kids to public schools believe it or not, lol!) The school itself and its administrators are AWFUL, they are like prison wardens, but the teachers my boys have this year are great (thank goodness...unlike one of them last year, who had a mental breakdown on us in front of my kids and screamed at us and ran around the room crying!!! Seriously...) We tried homeschool and it's not for us, although I'd always thought that's what we'd do, but the kids love school and their friends and recess, so they're happy which makes me happy!

Public.
It is a small school with less than 300 students and test scores in the mid to high 90's. When my son got his letter for Kindergarten this week there was a little note on it from his teacher to say "hi" to his sister for her, she knew he had a sister despite not actually teaching her. They know everyone, when you walk in the front door they address you by name and know which kids are yours.

DS went to a private school last year for prek. He liked it but it wasn't ideal. This year we are homeschooling.

A public charter. I voted other. We are going to be trying a back to basics public charter that is academically ahead of what the school district does. I briefly tried homeschooling but decided I wanted to try the charter because I really like the curriculum and think it is a great fit for dd.

Re: Where do you send your kids for school???

public school. I was going to homeschool, but honestly feel I need the break the ps gives me from my special needs 8 yo. Our schools aren't the greatest, but I believe that it is still my responsibility to make sure my kids are learning! So far, they are both doing wonderfully!

Basically, I do not send them for the education...

We homeschool. I want my kids to retain the love of learning that I had. I love learning but hate school. I also split custody with xh and it works well since he lives far from us.

I voted other. My daughter is in K in a public charter and my son is at a Montessori preschool.
