    I have two in public school and one being homeschooled. :D

    Our town has an excellent elementary system and an excellent high school. Middle School is, hmmm, well a doc I know says it's a zoo! Most say it's just "different".

    I suffered through middle school with my eldest and seriously considered homeschooling then. When my son moved up, I stood it for a year and said enough. He suffers from intractable migraines and ended up missing 85 days last year. I was already homeschooling! This year, no middle school and no migraines since the end of last year. June, July, August, September and October. This is the longest migraine free streak we've had since the first migraine he suffered four years ago. He's happy, the middle school is estactic that they don't have to deal with me anymore and he has made enormous strides in his education. Public school is no place for a child with a chronic illness, the system is just not set up to deal with a child who can't come to school.

    Our children went to public schools. No grandchildren yet :tear: :tear: but since our married daughter teaches 1st grade in a public school, I would imagine they'll go to public school

    Our two kids are in a private non-denominational Christian school...but it is housed at a Baptist church and the board is made up of members from Baptist churches.

    After going thru public elementary and middle schools, our teens are now in a Christian high school. What a difference!

    My prior feelings about Christian education were not positive ("Christian education is usually neither"), however, we are extremely glad we made the switch.

    FofS, Is this deja vu? I thought you did a thread like this before -- or did we just talk on a thread like this? Or have I completely gone round the bend?

    No comments allowed from the peanut gallery - you know who you are ;)

    Deju vu all over again. I think it was sometime last year when my daughter was moving from a public to a Christian high school and I was hoping to get some insights & experiences from everyone.

    Since then, my son has joined her & we are a lot more involved in the place so I thought I'd see what the status is out there.

    Very surprised that the polling is going the way it is.
