There are public schools in that area. If the public schooling can not suit your needs and you can not afford the prices for private/perocial schools, then my suggestion would be home schooling.

Choosing the proper schooling for your child(ren) can be very stressful. Home schooling offers a choice for parents who do not agree with everything the schools are teaching and can usually teach the child better and faster than the schools.

The public school environment is usually constrictive with "one size fits all" policies. The one on one (or a few) atmosphere you can provide at home gives a child immediate results and you can adjust your teachings to the child abilities. For instance, there are many ways to solve math problems. In school, only one or two of those ways are taught. At home, you can find out how your child can solve the problem best and allow your child to learn that way.

Home schoolers are strictly tested on a regular basis to ensure that they are learning what the board of education says they need to learn. No politics involved. You can teach your child about your family's beliefs. When you teach evolution, you can also teach about creation.

Anything the schools teaches your children, you can teach them as well. My website is available to check out the local public and private schools in the area. You can also go to the web reference to check out K12, on of the better web sites geared to helping parents teach their children.

Hope that helps.
