As I have written many times on here, my husband and I have been struggling to figure out what we should do about Madison's schooling for next year. For those of you who haven't been along for the whole ride, let be give you the short story.
My school district for a lack of a better term sucks. They have cut music, art, and all extracurriculars. We have went to referendum 3 (aff) times to get more money for the schools, and it has failed 3 (aff) times. Needless to say, it's not going through. The school has no teacher's aides and trying to get the school to tell me how many kids they have in their kindergarden class has been like pulling teeth. I have yet to get an answer from them besides they won't let the class size get up to more than 30 kids.
The private school we are looking at has 18 kids in the kindergarden class with a teacher's aide. It will be all day. It also has gym, computer, art, and music one day a week. They have answered all of my questions, and I do like what we have been told. I've visited the school twice, and Madison and I have been there together once.
We decided until our school district gets their rear in gear that the best place for Madison is the private school. We've already enrolled her for the fall. The rules seem a tad strict to me, but everybody keeps tell me that's good. I do think that has to do with the rebel in me. LOL Bill read through the handbook and found nothing wrong or restrictive. Wish us luck and I hope kindergarden goes well!
