After leaving a private school and totally disappointed with the elitism, teaching coming and going and curriculum reinvented every year, we went to our local public school and are flabbergasted how better everything is. MY gosh, why did we waste all that money and our boys bored to tears! Here, teachers are qualified, administrators know what they are doing and the kids are so kind to our boys. Our sons at the private school did 2-4 pages of math a day, here, 6-10 pages and they have orchestra, chess club, and lego club as well. Why didn't we leave the private school years ago? Thank goodness our kids are thriving and don't miss anything about their former school. So grateful that this is our home school!
