Holly and I are contemplating switching schools. Our kids have been going to the Christian school for 5 years now. As our family grows we are seeing that our financial house is getting larger. (and will continue to grow into the teenage years). This year we will be paying short of $300 a month.(that is with tuition assistance) That is a huge chunk of change. The reason we moved there was because the inner city community school in our area was not a very good environment.
In the 5 years that we have been at the school we are not any closer to the parents there. Sure we have some connections through association of our children, but there is not a strong sense of community for us.
There is a school that our neighbors go to that is a Catholic community school. One of the problems we face is transportation as Holly does not drive. This Catholic school provides transportation.
I am torn as my kids have always been at the Christian school. I know it is a minority for most children to attend a Christian school. We have all grown up in the school system.
Another thing that we are strongly considering is homeschooling Josh.
We have a week to decide so please pray that we will hear the voice of God in this matter.
